  1. Combine onions, ham hocks, and garlic in a stockpot; add chicken broth. Cook mixture over medium heat until meat is falling off the bone, about 2 hours.
  2. Stir collard greens, vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper into the broth mixture; cook until greens have reached desired tenderness, about 2 more hours.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Turkey necks can be substituted for the ham hocks. Cook for 45 minutes instead of 2 hours.
