this time of year you see collards everywhere. the frost has sweetened them up, and out in the country, you might see a whole truck load of collards. if a crowd is coming for new years, you may see people cooking up a black cast iron pot full over a fire. some people still do it that way, but most cook a big pot full in the house. we picked a pile of leaves and simply chopped them up, and cooked them down. we ate them seasoned up with a little soy sauce and apple cider vinegar. we had enough to eat for 4 days, just keeping them in the pot on the back porch at night. good eatin’!
