Collard Greens with Bacon

Ingredients
1 1/2
pounds collard greens
3

7 ounce smoked pork hock
1/2
cup chopped onion (1 medium)
1/2

1
teaspoon sugar
1/4

Red wine vinegar (optional)

Directions

  1. Wash collard greens thoroughly in cold water; drain well. Remove and discard stems; trim bruised leaves. Coarsely chop leaves to measure 6 cups; set aside.

Add water, pork hock, onion, sweet pepper, sugar, salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic to saucepan. Bring to boiling; add chopped collard greens. Reduce heat. Simmer, covered, about 1 1/4 hours or until greens are tender. Remove from heat. Remove pork hock. Cover greens; keep warm.
