Introduction

I could eat greens every day! Normally these are made with ham hocks and bacon grease, basically full of fat. These are slightly healthier = I also add a large sliced onion but that isn't required.

Ingredients

    27.5 cup Palmetto Gardens - Shredded Collard Greens
    18.0 oz Smoked Turkey Tails
    4.0 tsp Knorr Chicken Bouillon
    1/2 TB oh white vinegar
    Italian seasoning
    Garlic powder
    Onion powder

Directions

In this recipe, I bought per cut collards in a bag however, you can use the bunches of greens but will require you to chop them. In a large pot, add turkey with just enough water to cover, cover with lid and bring to a boil. Boil until fork tender (about 30 mins). Will be done with about 1 inch of water left. Soak shredded greens with warm salt water ( cleans/removes grit/dirt and kills any bug in veggies) for 10 mins. Drain water and rinse greens Add cleaned greens to cooked turkey. Ensure that there is at least 1in of water. Add vinegar, bouillon and other seasonings. Reduce heat to medium/simmer and cover greens. Cook greens for 1 1/2 hours until tender or desired doneness. Stirring throughout cooking process. Eat as a main dish or a side. Add chopped onions or pickled jalapeņos as a Garnish
