The preparation of the vegetables and the collard is easy and takes no more than hours. However, because of the sturdiness of the collard leaves a cooking time of 2 hours is required. But the long waiting time until the meal is ready is more than worthwhile.

Served

Collard Greens provide such a rich taste and leafy but tender texture that they may be the best greens I have jet served. On top of that they are the easiest to prepare and risk free to cook. Served with rice this meal is most satisfying.
