Thank you tastetester for a delicious recipe. This was my first attempt at greens, we loved them. We have had them other places, and did not care for them. This recipe was easy to follow, and SOOOOO tasty!
Having lived in the South, on and off, for 23 years (Louisiana, Florida, Alabama), I have eaten my share of collard greens. These are, without question, the best I ever have had! My collards were from the Farmers' Market; my ham hock was wonderfully meaty. It was delicious with skillet cornbread.
Even northerners like me will appreciate these tasty greens. Having never eaten collard greens before, I was a bit skeptical. But they were yummy. Thanks, TasteTester, for explicit and easy directions. Look at how much Vitamin A is in this recipe!
Wonderful collards, Taste Tester. The ingredients list is terrific as is. I prefer my greens a little less soupy and the ham hocks wouldn't get tender in 1hr, so I cooked it all uncovered for 2 1/2hrs. I put hot sauce on the table when serving.
