A neighbor gave me some fresh collard greens from his garden. Seriously, these may be the best collards that I've had, either homemade or in a restaurant. Two things that I really liked about this recipe are the rich flavor that the chicken stock adds and the little kick from the fresh jalapeño peppers. I know many people add crushed red pepper flakes to collards, but the jalapeños brought a different flavor (I added a pretty good sized pepper). And the fact that this is a slow cooker recipe, keeping me out of the hot kitchen at dinner time, is a bonus. Served with a splash of vinegar at the table. 3 D's Mom, thanks for sharing your recipe, we really enjoyed it.

This is a simple but very good recipe. I made it exactly as stated and will be making it again.

I was making this to go with baked ham. I cooked it on the stove for a couple hours and used chorizo instead of bacon or ham hock. Greens are soo very good for you! I also like to sprinkle a little red wine/ balsamic vinegar. Yummy! Thank you 3's Mom! You know I will make these often.
