Riverview Recipe: Miss Tekie’s Collard Greens

Cook a piece of country ham or bacon in water to cover until tender. Add cleaned and washed collard greens and cook at least 1 ½ to 2 hours longer. (The secret of good collards is to let liquid cook down low and have plenty of seasonings. You might need to add extra bacon drippings.) Salt to taste. Chop collards well before serving.
