"Got this from a coworker who made these for the office holiday potluck. Collard greens are cooked all day with ham shanks and pickled jalapeno. Yum!" — TROMTEZ

this was a great recipe..but i made so many changes that it evolved into a recipe of my own creation. first i omitted step 1 and the baking soda. next, i put in smoked turkey necks and seasoning(old bay and tony chacherre's creole seasoning) and the greens at the same time. next i piled on the greens(i conbined collard and mustard)!! i let them cook down for an hour and then put in the extra greens that didn't fit at first. i stirred every hour or so and added seasoning to taste. i cooked for 5hrs the night before and then 3hrs the day of thanksgiving, by doing that the seasonings had asorbed really well and the greens were tender and flavorful!! hope this helps a little.
While the taste was still banging, it was not a good fit for me. I used vinegar instead of baking soda. I would also recommending passing up the cooking before putting into the slow cooker.
This is great. I made this with frozen collard greens and skipped first step. Super flavor, not very hot even with jalapenos.
Very good recipe. I used smoked turkey legs and instead of boiling the meat on the stove first, I threw everything into the crockpot. I put in 2 cups of chicken broth and cooked on low for 6 hours.
For those of us who love greens year-round, the slow cooker is the perfect stove-top antidote during A/C season. These simple ingredients produced a complex, layered taste: spicy, savory, smoky. (I've used fresh garlic and jalapenos) A+ for ease of preparation and taste.
Kimmy, is the one with the right idea for these greens. WOW! These are the best greens I've made! Replacing the ham with smoked neck bones, 2 different seasonings, & adding as you go is the way. I used crushed red pepper instead of j-peppers..delicious. Making it again tonight.
