  • Servings

    4 to 6


  • 3 cups water

  • ½ pound smoked turkey wings or neck

  • 1½ pounds collard greens

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • ½ teaspoon sugar

  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


1. In a 4-quart saucepan, bring the water and smoked turkey to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour. 2. While the turkey is cooking, wipe the collards with a damp towel, then wash two or three times or until all the dirt and grit has been removed. Chop the greens into 1/2-inch pieces; you will have 10 cups of chopped greens. 3. Add the collards, oil, salt, black pepper, sugar, and red pepper flakes to the sauce pan. Return to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes longer. Discard the turkey before serving, or chop the turkey meat and add it to the collards.
