How to Make Mary Ellen's Collard Greens (Southern Style)

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 14 steps you must follow to make Mary Ellen's Collard Greens (Southern Style) in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Step 2
  • Step 3
  • clean the greens by removing any worm holes or brown spots. remove stem because they can be tough. wash the leaves in a sink full of water with 1/4 cup vinegar OR 1/8 cup of salt.
  • Step 4
  • lay approximately 5-6 leaves on top of each other and roll tight .. cut the roll every 1-2 inches. cut up all the greens. I'm paranoid so I wash them again in vinegar water twice. this assures that they are clean.
  • Step 5
  • clean cut up greens can be frozen in a Ziploc freezer bag for a time when they are not available.
  • Step 6
  • fry about 5-6 slices of bacon, I like pepper bacon. it should make enough grease to have grease in the bottom.
  • Step 7
  • in drippings add onion and garlic. stir for about 2 minutes to release flavors in oil.
  • Step 8
  • fill pot with greens.. make sure fire is on medium. as there becomes more room in the pot put more in to wilt. keep the process going until you have added al the greens you wish to cook. keep stirring until all the greens are covered with drippings.
  • Step 9
  • *** I have an ELECTRIC pressure cooker... if u have never used one it is a must... it can cook a frozen steak or chicken in less than an hour... it tenderizes tough cuts of meat like a roast or hamhocks in about 45- 60 minutes. they will be fall off the bone tender...and ready to use for beans or greens..
  • Step 10
  • I put my hamhocks in the pressure cooker for 45 minutes with enough water to cover the hamhock 1/2 way with onion, salt, pepper. if u don't use a pressure cooker then boil the hamhock in a covered pot for 1 1/2 hr with a splash of vinegar in a pot. the vinegar will help it tenderize.
  • Step 11
  • add about 1/8 cup of vinegar per pot of greens.
  • Step 12
  • add a dash of baking soda to cut gas and keep green...
  • Step 13
  • I use about 1/4 cup of the broth and lay the hamhock and whole hot pepper laid on top. turn fire down to Med low and let them cook for 45 Minutes.
  • Step 14
  • *** save the broth from hamhock to season canned or frozen veggies. I will put a recipe on my profile to season veggies that are canned or frozen.
