    I never made Collard Greens before~ thanks for the recipe! I actually couldn't get a smoked turkey leg, so I used chicken breast~ I still think it was pretty good. - 3/31/08

  • Awesome! I love this recipe. We don't use any meat, sub honey for the sugar, and use extra vinegar instead of the wine. It's perfect with black eyed peas and cornbread!!! - 9/20/11
