From the Four Seasons Hotel, Washington, D.C. Talk about a mess of greens! My dad grows greens year round and this is a great recipe to use them in.

I had a lot of greens to use up, and this was a terrific way to use them! This is a very delicious chowder and easy to make. I think the only thing I will do differently next time is skip the first hour long simmer with the broth and greens. I thought the greens ended up just cooking too long. I'll bring it to a boil just before adding the bacon mix.
