DIRECTIONS

  • Saute your onion in a oversized pot with just bacon fat. Add your smoked pork product and let some of the juices start to flow from it (about 5 minutes worth of cooking).
  • Meanwhile mix water, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper. Pour into pot and stir.
  • Add the greens. Mix up after each handful. Reduce heat as the cooking wilts them.
  • Continue to stir until wilted; then turn to low, cover and let cook for about 1 1/2-2 hours stirring once in a while and tasting to see if you need more salt and pepper.
