    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    I've been in the south for almost 4 years, after living all my life in the north. My gram used to make collard greens with salt pork, but down here in the south they use ham hocks, necks, and fatback, soooooooo I decided I was going to try the southern thing with a little twist of my own. They came out better then any I have EVER had, and I have had them quite a few times in restaurants around here. GREAT flavor, and just the right amount of everything makes this one dish you will be making more than once. Try em, you will be coming back for more for sure :)

      Wow! These were fantastic! I've only made collards once before, and they were not very good. I thought I'd try one more time, and came across this recipe; glad I did! Will be making these again very soon. Thank you for a great recipe!

      There is so much flavor in these greens, I couldn't believe it! I am going to try this with swiss chard and mustard greens too! Thank you for sharing!

      OMG....this was my first time ever making collard greens, I just always thought it was hard to make and time consuming. Making this recipe changed all that, this recipe was YUMMY IN MY TUMMY!! The ingredients were just right....I love vinegar over my greens, cooking it in the recipe saved that step and just made the flavor POP!! This is definitely a meal in itself too....No more canned collards for me!! Thanks for sharing!!
