Happy New Year

Happy 2015!  I hope you all had your collard greens and black eyed peas for the new year! 
Here's a recipe for collards that I modified from this site:
2 lbs pre-packaged fresh collards 
32 oz chicken broth
2 cups water
Ham bone
1 yellow onion diced
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 tsp. salt
2 T canola oil
Cook ham bone in chicken broth and water bringing to a boil.  Then reduce heat to simmer for about 30 minutes.  In a separate Dutch oven, put oil with diced onion, minced garlic (I only side part of 1 clove) and salt. Sauté until onion is transparent. Add collards. Meanwhile, remove the ham bone from the broth, and add the broth to the collards. Cut any meat left on ham bone, and add to collards. Then cook for about 1 1/2 hours on low. Yum, yum...Southern collard greens!
