Collard Greens

(by Tywanna Gardner)

1 lb. collard greens, rinsed and stemmed

1 lb. smoked turkey necks or smoked pork

1 t. pepper

optional: pinch of baking soda

optional: packet of collard greens seasoning

Put all ingredients in a large pot of water.

Bring to a boil, lower heat, and cook 1 - 2 hours, until the greens soften and the meat is fork-tender.

Pour out excess water, leaving just enough to moisten the greens and meat.
