Rickey’s Perfect Collard Greens

 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound smoked turkey wings
  • 4 cups of chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon seasoned salt
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 large bunch of collard greens
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube
  • 1 tablespoon of black pepper
  • 1 whole onion sliced
  • 1 tablespoon of granulated garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar

Directions 

  • Wash the collard greens thoroughly.

  • Remove the stems that run down the center by holding the leaf in your left hand and stripping the leaf down with your right hand. The tender young leaves in the heart of the collards don’t need to be stripped.

  • Stack 6 to 8 leaves on top of one another, roll up and slice into 1/2 to 1-inch thick slices.

  • In a large pot, bring 1 quart of water, butter & 4 cups of chicken stock to a boil

  • Add smoked turkey wings, bouillon cube, seasoned salt, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper onions, apple cider vinegar & red pepper flakes.

  • Reduce heat to medium and cook for 45 minutes.
