    Melvin'sWifey's Note:

    The man I love grew up eating Collard Greens and this was my first attempt! Now many recipes will call for bacon but this is the tried and true old fashioned way and you just feel so good making it for your family on a Sunday. This recipe is a pleaser and it came from Sylvia's Family Soul Food Cookbook. Sometimes I add red pepper flakes for heat. If you can't eat pork, but don't want to miss out, use smoked turkey!
