Collard Greens

Collard Greens are a member of the brassica family (along with cabbage, broccoli, kale, etc). They have a slightly bitter flavor so are more commonly cooked than eaten raw. They are known for being paired with ham hocks in southern-style cooking, but there are many options for this thick-leaved green.

Storage: keep dry in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to a week.

Preparation: Rinse well. Many recipes call for the stem to be removed and only the leaf used. The stems can be used, they just require more cooking time.
