(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.
