Welcome. I ate my favorite collard greens - my husband's recipe last night.
Start a large pot of salted water to boil
Fry 1/8 pound of bacon
While the bacon drains, cook a large diced yellow onion and half to whole head of chopped garlic in the bacon grease
Add a tablespoon of crushed red pepper to the onion/ garlic mixture
Cut the stems out of three large bunches of collard greens (and save the stems to make vegetable broth) and boil the greens for 7 minutes at a full rolling boil
Drain off the hot water and replace with cold water, and scoop out the collards in handfuls and SQUEEZE them into dry little clumps.
Chop the clumps into 1/4" slices and toss in the skillet with the onion and garlic and heat through
Add 1 cup of broth and cook to reduce
This is spicy and magical and I would choose it over most desserts.
