DIRECTIONS

  • Bring collard greens and water to cover to a boil in a large Dutch Oven. Remove from heat; drain. Repeat the process if you are boiling in batches.
  • Toss together the ham and hot sauce; cook in hot oil in the Dutch Oven over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until browned (while the collards are draining). Add the onion and garlic; saute until tender.
  • Stir in greens, potato, and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, stirring occasionally for 45 minutes.
