Recipe for Collard Greens by Author Margaree Mitchell

Collard Greens recipe

  • 3 bags Pre-Cut and Washed Collard Greens
  • 2 Smoked Turkey Wings
  • 3 quarts Water
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Pepper
  • Hot Sauce


Place collard greens in a large pot.  Add water.  Cut each turkey wing into 3 pieces.  Add to pot.  Bring to boil, reduce heat and let simmer until tender, approximately 3 hours.  Add sugar, salt, and pepper.  Stir.  Right before serving, add a few dashes of hot sauce.  Serves 6.


Note:  This is a dish Lauren’s Mom from The People In The Park would serve.  On the cook’s day off, Lauren’s Mom would cook dishes from her childhood to keep Lauren connected to her African American heritage.  However, since these are modern times and Lauren’s Mom doesn’t have time to pick and wash greens, she uses the fresh pre-cut and washed greens in a bag.  Since she is also health conscious, instead of using the traditional ham hock for seasoning, she uses smoked turkey wings instead.
