    CarolinaCookingGal's Note:

    Delicious wilted collard greens ... the prefect balance of salty bacon, sweet onion and bitter greens. Serve with beef, fish, chicken or by itself with a loaf of crusty bread and other vegetables! Wonderful side item or main dish!

    1. 1
      Turn an eye on the stove to medium heat.
    2. 2
      In a large sauté pan or stock pot, cook the chopped bacon for a few minutes until some grease is rendered, then, toss in the onion. Cook this until onion becomes tender. DO NOT DRAIN!
    3. 3
      Next, throw the collard greens into the bacon and onion and carefully stir a little (it will seem like there are too many collard greens, but they cook down very quickly).
    4. 4
      Pour in the chicken stock and the water.
    5. 5
      Add the optional seasonings (pepper, seasoning salt and vinegar).
    6. 6
      Cover the pan and cook on medium to medium high. You will see the collards begin to wilt rather quickly.
    7. 7
      Continue cooking until all of the liquid is gone, stirring occasionally. (This normally takes me about 20 minutes.).
    8. 8
      Try the collards and if they are not as tender as you would like, simply add 1/4 cup of water at a time until they reach the desired tenderness.
