    Rita~'s Note:

    Collards are among the oldest members of the cabbage family! Vegetarians can skip the bacon and use smoke flavoring and use a veggie broth in place of the chicken broth. I find this is one green that you do have to cook a while. The flavor is between cabbage and kale. They are low in calories. A rich source of fiber, vitamin C and calcium, and protects you against cancer.

      I did not use this recipe for my collards, but mine mirrored this recipe except for the sugar although I did not measure anything. It was just what I threw together and they are so very good this way. Melt in your mouth tender, and packed full of flavor.

      Wow!!!!!! Good for U, Great tasting, Quick and Easy...doesn't get much better than that. My family had always cooked the collards in a large pot of boiling water seasoned with a ham hock. They boiled the greens so long, I am sure they boiled all the nutrients out. This recipe, the greens were actually still green and full of vitamins when done. I tell ya, the stock made a huge difference in the taste here. Will def be using this recipe from now on.

      I made two additions to the recipe I added a ham hock since I had purchased it for the collard greens and a sprinkling of dried red pepper. I was not sure about the brown sugar and thought it made the broth a bit sweet. I cooked it long and slow until the flavors melded and the greens were tender. This was perfect and I will definitely make it again.
