Deborah's Slow Cooker Collard Greens


Collard, mustard, and turnip greens come together in this slow-cooked side dish. Diced ham and beef broth add smoky richness to the vegetables. I experimented for years until I came up with this recipe, it has a lot more flavor than other recipes I have tried.
