I halved this recipe, but still used 5 cloves of garlic and 1 tsp of salt. Also, I used pork neck instead of ham hocks. But talk about easy! This recipe was delicious! I served it with kielbasa sausage over mashed potatoes to sop up the broth. Can't wait to make it again!

Excellent authentic southern style greens. Used some seasoned salt, a bit of organic no-salt seasoning from Costco, mixed collards, turnip greens, & kale. Otherwise made it just as the recipe called for & it was perfect. Wonderful savory flavor.
