Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon
  • 6 Cups water
  • 2 bunches collard greens, stemmed and roughly chopped
  • 1 jalapeños, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 Cup apple cider vinegar
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper

Directions

Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook, turning occasionally, until just crisp. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate, then carefully discard bacon fat and return pot to the stove. When cool enough to handle, roughly chop bacon.

Add water to pot and bring to a boil. Add bacon, greens, jalapeños, vinegar, salt, and pepper, reduce heat to medium low, cover, and simmer until greens are tender and "pot likker" liquid is flavorful, about 1 hour.

Collard Green Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Collard Green Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.
