The things I do for love! Collard Greens...

Jason has been mentioning he misses collard greens from when his family lived in Kentucky and would have family get togethers.  So today, I decided to whip some up... serving them with lazy foods (Fried Chicken, mashed potatoes, mac & cheese and some of the homemade corn bread I posted last week.. made fresh today :)

Recipe from SouthernGirl3 at


  • 1 bunch collard greens - rinsed, trimmed and chopped (This means cutting out the center stem from each leaf and rolling what's left and trimming into 1 inch strips.)
  • 2 smoked ham hocks
  • 2 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed chicken broth (I just used 3 cans of Swanson chicken broth in place of both this condensed broth and water.)
  • 21 fluid ounces water
  • 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place the collard greens and ham hocks in a large pot. Mix in the chicken broth, water, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 2 hours.
