    KezCaL's Note:

    These greens definitely have a kick. They're a perfect mixture of spice, veggies, herbs, and smoke, without the meat. They've got an edgy spice to them that authentic Caribbean and Mexican-cuisine lovers will enjoy. Even better, they're good for you - without the meat, without the fat, and without all the salt. For this recipe, use a regular eating spoon as your "teaspoon," and make all of your tablespoons slightly heaping (and slightly overflowing, for your tablespooned liquids). Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Clean 3 bunches of collard greens thoroughly by sprinkling with salt, washing and rinsing. Cut greens as desired, then set aside.
    2. 2
      In a large pot, heat 7 cups of water and brown sugar to boiling.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil and sautee garlic, onion, and both peppers until tender. Add contents of skillet to the water and reduce heat to medium.
    4. 4
      As water continues to boil gently, add liquid smoke, vinegars, bay leaves, thyme, celery salt, black pepper, cheesecloth-bagged coriander, onion powder, red pepper, and Worcestershire sauce to pot.
    5. 5
      Add all greens to pot, stirring gently to submerge greens into broth.
    6. 6
      Cook on medium heat for 45 minutes.
    7. 7
      Then reduce heat to low and simmer for another 20 minutes.
    8. 8
      Taste the "pot liquor" and add the extra cup of water if desired to reduce the "kick", making your greens more mild and less spicy.
    9. 9
      Serve with sweet cornbread.
