I loooove Greens. When I was growing my grandma would make greens all the time and it was such a treat. She would cook greens with ham hocks back then. But I cook mine with smoke turkey a little healthier. I have not meant someone yet that did not look some well seasoned greens (collard, mustard or turnips) Collards are my favorite I know some people mix the greens together. But I am just a fan favorite of collards. If you are looking for an easy, flavorful and downright addictive collard greens recipe you can to the right blog/website.
Collard greens have been cooked and used for centuries. The Southern-style of cooking of greens came with the arrival of African slaves to the southern colonies and the need to satisfy their hunger and provide food for their families. Though greens did not originate in Africa, the habit of eating greens that have been cooked down into a low gravy, and drinking the juices from the greens (known as “pot likker”) is of African origin.
I’ve been eating collard greens for as long as I can remember. My grandmother made them every Sunday for dinner. Low and slow is the best way to cook collard greens, No need to rush.
