Crock pot Greens

Submitted by: FOXMOM08

Introduction

When I have them I use collards from my garden but any greens will do for this delicious, easy recipe! Use vegetable broth and drop the bacon for a simple vegetarian treat!

Ingredients

    2 bunches greens (I used collard and mustard for this, about 12 cups when trimmed and chopped.)
    4 full slices bacon
    1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    2 tsp brown sugar
    4 cups chicken broth (I used 1 pckg Pacific Natural low sodium chicken broth)

Directions

Trim away the main stem and clean the greens well by giving thorough rinsings. 2-3 times as needed to get all the grit off then set aside to drain. Collards tend to be pretty clean anyway but mustard greens usually have lots of dirt still.

Cook the bacon til crispy.

Chiffonade the greens and add to your slow cooker. Crumble the cooked bacon and pour it with the rendered fat over the greens. Add about 1 tbsp vinegar, sprinkle the brown sugar and then pour in the chicken broth.

Cover and set to low for about 6 hours. Makes 6 1-cup servings

    This is delicious. We get collard greens through our organic co-op and are never sure what to do with them. This is great. Thanks for sharing! - 1/14/10
