      This is exactly the way I cook greens, so when I saw it I had to give it 5 stars. To get all of that great flavor they have to slowly cook a long time. My personal preference for the meat is smoked ham, but the bacon is good too. I also loved the way the recipe is written, sounds like it came straight from your Grandmother (or mine :-)) Thanks for posting it.
