  • Meanwhile, prepare greens. Discard damaged or yellow parts of leaves. Cut away the tough ends from each leaf. Place greens in a colander, and wash thoroughly until rinse water is clear of dirt. Fold each leaf in half at its center vein, fold over once or twice more, then cut in half.

  • Stir prepared greens into the simmering liquid. Let simmer all together for approximately 1 hour over low heat. Ladle into shallow bowls, and add sugar and cider vinegar to each bowl. Serve.

NO GARLIC? NO ONIONS? NO WAY! You can't possibly be southern! P.S. Save the sugar for the yams. Read More

This is the true way of eating Collard greens in the South. Instead of salted pork I used hamhocks and I added a vidalia onion. This was my first time making collards greens. I am very please with this recipe Read More

I made these greens for Thanksgiving dinner and no one could believe it was the first time I ever cooked them! They tasted just like they did when I was a kid growing up in Georgia. I didn't add the vinegar to the pot though; just left it to the side for personal preference. Thank you so much! People beleive that I'm a Southern girl now! Read More

These are great. I have alwasy added a little sweet to my greens(not too much) it takes the bitterness away. I am from Alabama and this is the way it has always been for me. I use honey or syrup or brown sugar and it all seems to work. Even the people who say they don't like collards eat these. Read More

Just like my grandma used to make...if you are scared of the salt pork/extra fat try smoked turkey leg...tastes just like ham..and the greens are still flavorful Read More

I made this for sunday dinner to try something new and it did not work..Sugar in greens is never a good idea. I had to remake the recipe and used turkey wings onion and garlic. And they had more of the southern flavor I am used to. Read More
