Collard Greens 2

For a bit of time, I could not find my favorite collard greens recipe, but thankfully it appeared!  The other recipe that I posted is good, this is even better.  Enjoy...

Collard Greens

1 bag of collard greens
1 smoked ham hock
1 yellow onion, cut into quarters
1 turnip, cut into quarters
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tbsp. hot pepper vinegar or white vinegar w/ a dash of crushed red pepper
3 garlic cloves, peeled and left whole
1 tablespoon season salt

In a large pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil, add pork, season salt & vinegar & cook covered until pork starts to get tender, approx. 45 minutes.

Saute onion and turnip in 2 tablespoons of olive oil for 5 minutes in a separate pan.  Add garlic and cook for 5 minutes more.  Add sauteed vegetables to water.  Add collard greens & cook for 40 minutes or desired tenderness.
