DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse turkey butts and boil for 2 hours in 2 quarts of water. Keep adding water as it boils off so that it is always 2 quarts.
  • Clean collard greens and remove the stems. Tear into small pieces. Put into seperate pot. It may look like a lot of greens, but they shrink when cooked.
  • Remove turkey butts and set aside to cool.
  • Pour the hot turkey broth over the greens.(don't burn yourself!).
  • Pick the meat off of the butts and discard fat and skin.
  • Add turkey meat to the simmering collards.
  • Bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour, or until greens are tender.
  • When serving, use a large spoon with holes. When you're finished with the greens the remaining broth makes a great base for soup (pot licker soup). Just add egg noodles and enjoy the flavor and the vitamins.
