Many thanks to Angie Davis for sharing this special Kwanzaa recipe.

New Style Collard Greens

Have all the flavor of traditionally prepared collard greens, without all of the fat that is normally added!

Cut through the stems and yellow leaves from the collard greens and discard. Gently rub the leaves with your fingers under running warm water. Cut the greens into large pieces. Let the leaves soak in warm, salted water for 10 minutes. Rinse with cool water and drain in collander.

In a large pot, bring the water to a boil. Add the collard greens , smoked turkey wings, salt, red pepper, garlic, sugar, and olive oil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer over low heat for 1 1/2-2 hours, or until the greens are tender. Stir occasionally and add hot water to cover the greens as needed.
