In earlier times in our culture, slaves were allowed to grow a few
crops for themselves, but they obviously were not crops that the
"house" would want to claim. Collard greens are a mite bitter if you
don't know what to do with them, so collard greens became a part of
the soul diet in the South.
This recipe is simple and just delicious. Don't talk to me about
cooking greens too long. In this case it is part of the tradition.
Wash the greens very well. Shake dry and place in a kettle. Add the
chicken broth and bring to a full boil. Lower the heat and keep the
pot at a heavy simmer until the greens are tender and to your liking.
Add the seasonings and bacon fat.
