COLLARDS

Ingredients

Preparation

Strip leaves from tough stems. Wash greens several times in fresh water to remove grit. Roll leaves into a cigar shape and cut into 1-inch sections. Put all ingredients into a large stockpot and cover with water. Cook at a low boil for 2 to 3 hours or until tender. Adjust seasoning and add water as needed.
