Collards


General Information

Collards are often associated with southern cooking. I find this strange since the plants are very cold resilient. They also taste better after a mild frost. They can be used in any recipe calling for kale. The leaves are large and on the tough side so eating raw is not recommended.


Storage Information

Store in a plastic bag in your refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.


Cooking Suggestions

  • Substitute them for kale in any recipe.
  • Saute in olive oil with onion. For a more southern feel, use bacon fat and add pieces of bacon.
  • Add to soups and burritos
