Southern Collard Greens

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
Take it from a TRUE Alabama girl, this is not exactly how to make REAL SOUTHERN collard greens. First, you must cut out all the thick stems. Discard them. Chop greens and cook as direted in this recipe with hamhocks. I use a pressure cooker and pressure them for 45 minutes. After the steam is released, take off the top and add at least 1/4 bacon grease. Nothing else will do, arteries be damned! Cook down until no liquid is left. If using a tradition stove-top method, add the bacon grease after the two hours of cooking. This is the method used for generations in my family. AWESOME! The more bacon grease the better.
