  • i buy the fresh greens rinse and soak them in the sink. after washing in a large pan coat bottom with oil add about 1/2 c water. one ham hock and a strip of fat back. place greens on top of meat and simmer on med low covered until tender til u desire. These are def not a healthy option but delicious

  • woohoo! i love me some greens.
    i usually freeze mine first then thaw. chop up fine and remove all stems and veins. fry it up till soft with bacon grease and some onion and garlic, then i put them in pot with some water, white potatoes, country ham pieces or bacon pieces and black pepper. on the table, we have salt and pepper, pepper vinegar and some extra hot red chile peppers for those who like it hot.

  • Cut the thick center stem out & throw away, place the 2 halves on top of each other, slice down the middle, then lengthwise into small sections. Soak/rinse in cold water to remove grit. Add to a large stockpot that's been boiling with ham hocks. I add seasonings like salt/pepper, red pepper, onion & garlic powder. Gently boil until soft, pick meat off of hocks & return to pot. Serve with vinegar if desired.
