Slow cooker Collard greens... I put these on the night before so that we have plenty of greens for the new year's day feast. Combine your favorite greens. Use ham hock or smoked turkey. Omit the sliced bacon if you wish.
Collard greens are one vegetable I just can't resist. Their thick, meaty leaves, propped up by huge center ribs, are monsters in the world of leafy greens. I love their beauty, so big and elephantine, leathery and deep blue-green. I cut away those middle ribs and slice the leaves into ribbons, and braise them until they are tender and juicy.
