Recipe: Collard Greens

Here's my recipe for collard greens......

3 large or 4 medium-small sized bunches collard greens
5 cans chicken broth
1 small package of salt pork (ham hocks are ok)
1 small jar minced garlic
2 tablespoons red pepper flakes

* Bring 4 cans of chicken broth, the salt pork and your desired amount of minced garlic (I use 2-3 tablespoons) to a boil in a large pot, and then simmer on low for 1 hour, covered.

* Chop 1 bunch of greens at a time (discard the end stalks), and add to broth (stir in and wait for greens to wilt a little before adding the next bunch). Use additional broth to submerge greens. Bring to boil.

* Reduce greens to low heat, covered for 1 hour.

* Bring to a boil again, and add red pepper flakes. Stir and simmer again on low heat for another hour, covered.
