6-8 Bunches Of Collard Greens
2-3 Smoked Ham Hocks
Garlic Powder (your preference)
Season Salt (your preference)
Lets start with cooking your ham hacks. Add ham hocks to boiling pot and fill with water. Cook on medium heat for 2-3 hours until meat is tender. Meat is done when it begins to fall off the bone. Add additionally water if necessary.
While the ham hocks are cooking go ahead and clean and cut your greens. Greens should be rinsed several times in cold water to remove dirt or sand. After greens are clean, stack several leaves on top of each other. Roll the leaves together and cut leaves into 1 inch thick strips.
When your ham hocks are done, add the greens, garlic and season salt to the same pot. Boil on low heat for 1-2 hours until greens are tender. Stir your greens often to distribute the ham hock and increase the flavor. About halfway through cooking taste test your greens and add more seasoning if necessary.
