Collard Greens

This were really not that difficult to make, and tasted as good if not better than the ones I use to eat at my neighbors house! I will definitely be making these again!

  • ½ pound smoked meat ham hocks, smoked turkey wings, or smoked neck bones
  • 1 tablespoon House seasoning recipe follows
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon hot red pepper sauce
  • 1 large bunch collard greens
  • 1 tablespoon butter


  • In a large pot, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil and add smoked meat, house seasoning, seasoned salt and hot sauce. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 1 hour.
  • Wash the collard greens thoroughly. Remove the stems that run down the center by holding the leaf in your left hand and stripping the leaf down with your right hand. The tender young leaves in the heart of the collards don't need to be stripped.
  • Stack 6 to 8 leaves on top of one another, roll up, and slice into ½ to 1-inch thick slices. Place greens in pot with meat and add butter. Cook for 45 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. 
  • When done taste and adjust seasoning.
