Delicious collards recipe

March 25th, 2018 at 04:52 pm

I always kind of wing it with greens, but tonight's turned out really delicious, so AS said I should write it down. I didn't measure anything, so it's all guesstimates, but here goes:

1 large bunch collards, ribs removed, chopped and rinsed
1.5 T vegan bacon grease (could use real, or canola with bacon bits)
3 cloves garlic, pressed
1 T sugar
2 T white vinegar
1 t salt
1/4 cup water

I sauteed the garlic for a minute or two in the "bacon" grease. Then I put all the collards in (you can stuff the pot and fill it the top because they shrink way down). Throw in the remaining ingredients, cover pot and turn heat to low. Cook, stirring occasionally, anywhere from 15-45 minutes. (Collards are hardy plants and could be cooked even longer than that.)

    I'd never had collards until I moved to here to the Southeast...they are everywhere! I only made them once, but I can imagine the sugar and vinegar make a nice flavor along with the oil. I may just try this next weekend! Thanks for sharing.

    I have been thinking about growing these this year. This looks like a great recipe to try to see if we like them. Although everything probably tastes good cooked in bacon grease.

    I actually enjoyed the collards raw...should really add them to salads more often.

    I don't like collards, but with other greens like spinach, kale, etc., I only like to eat them raw. I suppose it's a throw back from my childhood when my mom would try to get me to eat cooked spinach.

    I just noticed in your goals for this year you are trying relaxation techniques. In January, I started going to a local place to do sound meditation. It is very relaxing, so much so that I almost fall asleep sometimes.

    Thank you! I do intend to try meditation at some point this year (I have a couple of friends who swear by it), but so far just cutting down on screen time and drinking, and adding guitar practice and herbal tea to my routine, has done a lot to reduce my stress levels.

    Will have to try!

    When you get around to trying out meditation, check out the Insight Timer Meditation App (https://insighttimer.com/). I have been using this app for over five years now and the tracking/stats feature as well as the nice variety of guided meditation choices and the flexible options on the timer have led to MUCH fore consistency on my part.

    I'm a fan of meditation. Lots of options on YouTube! I prefer the guided kinds. I'm going to check out that app, Dido. Smile
