With Thanksgiving right around the corner (I know, right?!), I thought it would be appropriate to share one of my favorite holiday dishes with y’all. In the south, collard greens are a timeless, good for your soul, classic. I always keep a bag of already cleaned and chopped greens (collard, kale or turnip exc.) in my freezer for quick additions to soups and stews and even smoothies but I usually only make this dish once a year. The fibrous and slightly bitter leaves require an extensive cooking time but it is well worth the wait, trust me! Being in season during the fall/ winter months, beautifully hued deep green collard greens are available for cents by the pound.

Aren’t these just absolutely stunning?! I think so too! I’d take a beautiful bouquet of collard greens over roses any day. **Mental note**…
