As far as I can remember Collard Greens have been a staple in our family’s menu. At every gathering, holiday, special occasion, funeral repast, etc there were COLLARD GREENS. As a kid collard greens wasn’t my favorite thing to eat but I took comfort knowing they were there. As I grew older and developed an appreciation for them I looked forward to seeing and eating them. As many of you may have heard the controversy about Neiman Marcus selling $66 collard greens plus another $15 for shipping. For those who may not have here is the link to an article.

Collard Greens were not invented buy Black people but I must say that many of us have mastered the art of preparing them including my grandmother, mother, my sister and myself. So I can safely say we know a little somethin  somethin about making a pot of smokin collard greens. I prefer to mix kale with mine. I prepare them with a vegetable broth oppose and meatless. For centuries meat has been added to collards. Ham hocks, smoked neck bones or smoked turkey has been known to grace the pot of collard greens. As of late I prefer no meat. I remember the day I decided to eliminate meat. I was nervous. I was feeling like I was breaking some sort of law. Performing some sacrilegious act by going meatless. Much to my surprise I enjoyed them more. Now I go MEATLESS.
