Preparation

In a large 6 quart pot, cook the smoked meat in 6 cups of water for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, until fall off the bone tender. This step may be done up to 2 days in advance. Pick the meat off the bones and return the meat only, to the cooking water.

Meanwhile, remove the rib from each leaf and stack 8 to 10 leaves on top of each other. Roll each stack into the shape of a cigar and slice into 1 inch strips.

Add the collard greens and salt to the pot and continue cooking for 30 minutes longer, until the greens are tender.

Drain and serve as a side dish with any Southern or barbecued food.

I always cook mine with a ham shank, salt, pepper, chopped green onions and a couple drops of Tabasco sauce. Using Ham shank instead of hocks cuts down the amount of residual grease in the water, which can remain on the greens.

I usually make Turnip or mustard greens. These were delicious. I had to put my two cents in so I decided to add some paprika and garlic salt.

To prepare a vegetarian dish, omit the smoked ham hocks. A barbecue sauce or hot sauce may also be used for flavoring. [I posted this recipe.]
