Down South, we do like to add alot of flavor to food by using the traditional bacon and hamhocks. I have found another alternative by using smoked turkey wings. They are found in the same section as ham hocks and add all the flavor you need, but not as much fat. After cooking with the wing, remove them from the pot, pick the meat from the bone, discarding the skin and bones. Return the meat to the pot of collards or beans.
