Collard Greens
 
kevin crafts 
this recipe requires that you have bacon drippings, which is common in a 
"down home" kitchen. if not, the next time you fry up some bacon just 
strain the drippings into a heat proof container and store in the 
fridge. this is a great addition to braising meats and cooking 
vegetables like okra and spinach. remember - waste not want not! 
 
1 medium  smoked ham hock
4 cup  water
2 lb.  collard greens, trimmed and well rinsed
1 tsp  salt
1 tsp  red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp  sugar
1/4 cup  bacon drippings
 
in a large pot, add the ham hock and water and bring to a boil. reduce 
the heat and simmer for 1 hour, skimming the foam as needed. 
chop the cleaned greens into small pieces. add the greens to the pot 
with the ham. stir in the sugar, red pepper flakes and bacon drippings. 
simmer for another 20 minutes.
