How to make it
- 1. Fry the bacon in a pot large enough to cook the greens.
- 2. Add the greens along with onions.
- 3. Cook on low heat, stirring with wooden spoon, until greens are coated with bacon fat (about 2 minutes).
- Pour off excess fat.
- 4. Cover the greens with water and season with salt and pepper.
- 5. Bring to boil. Cover the pot, reduce heat, and simmer until tender (time will vary, about 1 hour).
- Stir occasionally and add water if they threaten to scorch. When done, increase heat to med-high, stir often. Boil off nearly all the cooking liquid.
