    Bogey'sMom's Note:

    Greens have traditionally been cooked down in water with a piece of smoked ham hock or turkey wing. This new method of wilting them leaves them greener and tastier.

      Excellent recipe. I made it almost exactly as written and it was pretty much perfect. I will drain some fat next time, as it didn't really need that much. I added maybe 1/2c water to the pot to speed along the wilting process with steam. A !

      Great flavor and not cooked to death. I loved the tang of the vinegar and how it kept the greens greener in color. I made this as written; just threw in a pinch of sugar. This is a wonderfully easy method of preparing collards. Thanx!
