Preparing the Collard Greens
1. Prepare your collard greens by washing them thoroughly with warm water to remove any dirt or debris.
2. Layer collard greens on top of each other, cutting to remove the stem in the center of the greens.
3. Once the stem is removed, roll greens up into a bundle and cut into bite-size pieces.
4. Repeat this process until all greens are cut and set aside.
Preparing the Stock Pot
1. Fill a stock pot halfway full of cold water.
2. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, multi-purpose seasoning, kosher salt, and black pepper and bring to a boil.
Adding Ingredients to the Pot
1. Once water is boiling, add your ham bone or neck bones.
2. Add the collard greens and chopped onions, again bringing to a full boil.
3. Lower the temperature to simmer (low boil) and place a top on the pot.
4. Stir to incorporate the seasonings.
Tasting and Adjusting the Flavor
1. Taste the collard greens after 45 minutes for tenderness and flavoring (also taste the juice).
2. At this time in small amounts, you can add additional garlic powder, onion powder, multi-purpose seasoning, kosher salt, and pepper to acquire the desired taste.
3. You can add the sugar if you’d like a little sweeter taste.
4. If you’d like a little more liquid, just add a bit of hot water.
5. Simmer for an additional 30 to 45 minutes until tender.
Mixing with Other Greens
1. Collard greens can carry an intense flavor. You can always mix them with mustard greens, and or turnip greens (you would prepare these along with the collards the same way).
