Reheated Collard Greens

I am preparing to cook collard greens for the first time and I have a few questions. First, I'd like to know if cooking collard greens in advance and reheating them is okay. Second, I'd like to know what is the best way to reheat collard greens? The reason I ask is because I'm cooking a very big meal and want to get ahead of my cooking so that I don't have to cook so much the day of. Thanks for taking the time to answer my question about cooking and reheating collard greens.

Does what you said about reheating collard greens also apply to turnip greens?

Connie to answer your questions. Yes you can reheat collard greens. I've found that my collard greens taste much better the day after, which means they're better tasting after being reheated. And yes you can cook your collard greens in advance...a day or two max.

When it's time to reheat the greens, all you have to do is pour the greens along with the juice (must retain juice when you refrigerate) into a nice size pot and heat the greens over medium-low heat just before serving time.

I've eating collard greens for a few days after cooking them, by only heating what I planned to eat, all the rest of the greens were left in the frig. I hope this answers your questions.
