Ingredients

How to make it

  • Have a large boiler on the stove with the turkey necks and olive oil boiling to get the water all seasoned up
  • DON'T PUT A LOT OF WATER! Not even half full.
  • YOU CAN ALWAYS ADD MORE WATER LATER.
  • THE GREENS PRODUCE WATER AND WILL REDUCE .
  • Wash the greens VERY good....
  • The secret again is to pull the center vein out of the collard greens and stack up the leaves. Cut all stems to avoid bitterness
  • *** HELPFUL HINT*************
  • Use the duct tape to cover your thumb to avoid cutting it off!!
  • ******************************************
  • Roll the leaves up and with a sharp knife, chop the greens well and place in another large bowl
  • Continue this process until the greens are all cut up,
  • It takes a while, but it will be so good later!
  • Once you've finished chopping, cutting, and pulling...WASH the greens again to get another good rinse.
  • Have a pot of boiling water on the stove with the smoked turkey necks and olive oil
  • You can taste a little bit of the water to make sure it is not too salty.
  • If you need to take some of the water out of the pan, save it in case you need to ADD water later
  • Once the water is seasoned, carefully add all the greens to the seasoned water,
  • You might think you've got a lot of greens, but after they cook - they have shrinkage!
  • Cover the pan and let the greens cook on medium heat until they are tender.
  • You can always add the seasoned water from earlier if necessary
  • Taste and enjoy!!
  • *If I have missed anything or you have questions, feel free to ask!!*

    I know this is a stupid question but, do the necks fall a part and leve little bones in the collards? I did this with smoked turkey legs and I had splinter bones everywhere. This sounds wonderful.....:)
