We have to admit that we didn't used to be big collard green fans. But when they're cooked until really tender, with a little sugar in the water to cut the bitterness, it makes a big difference. Guess what? I'm enjoying my collards more and more these days.
What You'll Need
- 1 bunch (about 2 pounds) collard greens, stems removed and coarsely chopped
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 teaspoons salt, divided
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What to Do
- In a soup pot, combine collard greens, sugar, and 1-1/2 teaspoons salt. Add enough water to cover and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover and cook 1-1/2 to 2 hours, or until tender, stirring occasionally.
- Drain off liquid and add butter, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and pepper. Continue cooking until collards are sizzling and they're coated with butter.
