salt to taste
Substitute the salt pork for smoked ham hocks and you've got the traditional southern recipe. Wonderful!!
NO GARLIC? NO ONIONS? NO WAY! You can't possibly be southern!
P.S. Save the sugar for the yams.
This is the true way of eating Collard greens in the South. Instead of salted pork I used hamhocks and I added a vidalia onion. This was my first time making collards greens. I am very please with this recipe
Pretty good recipe. I used Kale instead of Collards. It was very tasty.
Just like my grandma used to make...if you are scared of the salt pork/extra fat, try smoked turkey leg...tastes just like ham..and the greens are still flavorful
I made these greens for Thanksgiving dinner, and no one could believe it was the first time I ever cooked them! They tasted just like they did when I was a kid growing up in Georgia. I didn't add the vinegar to the pot, though; just left it to the side for personal preference. Thank you so much! People beleive that I'm a Southern girl now!
These are great. I have alwasy added a little sweet to my greens(not too much) it takes the bitterness away. I am from Alabama and this is the way it has always been for me. I use honey, or syrup, or brown sugar and it all seems to work. Even the people who say they don't like collards eat these.
"Great Greens....Added a touch of red pepper flakes & onion. Mmmmm."
