Country collard greens

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 pounds Collard greens or kale
1 Smoked ham hock (abt 1 lb.)
4 mediums Onions, chopped
2 mediums Green or red bell peppers
⅔ cup Cider vinegar, pref unrefind
1 tablespoon Honey
3 Garlic cloves, minced

Remove tough stems from greens and roughly chop. Chop the bell peppers.

Combine all the ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, for about 2 hours. With a slotted spoon, remove the ham hock. When hock is cool enough to handle, pick the meat from it in small chunks or shreds and return it to the pot. Reheat the greens briefly, if necessary.
