Keep in mind that collard greens will taste bitter unless the stems, including the interior stems, are removed and ham parts are used in cooking them to further remove the bitterness.

Collard Greens

Serves 8

Ingredients:

1 smoked ham hock or chunk of salt pork
Water
7 - 8 lb collard greens
3 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Directions:

Place pork in a large pot; fill halfway with water and cook, covered, on medium low heat for about 2 hours.

Meanwhile, remove stems (including the interior stems) from the greens and cut leaves into fairly large pieces, rinse several times in warm salted water and drain.

After ham hock is cooked to tender remove from the pot, cut into bite sized pieces, return to pot and stir in the salt and pepper. Add enough greens to fill the pot and cover. As the greens shrink, add more, stirring occasionally, until all the greens are added. Cook greens for another 1 to 2 1/2 hours or until they are tender.
