Real Fried Collard Greens
by: Jack

My hillbilly mama from the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia had the best recipe for greens. This works well with any fresh greens and works best with mixed greens to balance the flavors. After cooking the greens with the salt pork until tender, she drained them and then literally fried them in hot bacon grease with chopped onion or ramps until well coated and any remaining liquid is cooked out. Serve with soup beans, fried potatoes and corn bread.

Clean the greens until all dirt is off the greens. Next roll the greens and cut, into thin slices, from one end to the next on a cutting board. Then use a little grease, preferable from bacon, begin stacking the cut greens (largest to smallest) in a large pot. You can add a little water if you'd like to, season and add whatever meat of your choice. If using salt pork, you're going to need to boil some of the salt off first. Slow cook the greens on low-medium heat. Enjoy

After cleaning and cutting into thin strips, put into a frying pan with a little bacon grease and cook on medium-low heat until tender. You may add small amounts of water if needed, it will evaporate soon, salt and pepper to taste while cooking.
