Collard Greens with Bacon

I never knew how much I liked this traditional southern dish until I made this recipe. It’s worth the time it takes to cook these leafy greens. Whip up a bunch to munch on all week, or simply ORDER FROM US and have it ready to roll in your freezer for when the mood strikes. Karen, our nutrition consultant, made a batch at home.

We tend to think of Collard Greens as a dish from the south. But in reality it is grown and eaten all over the world. I found a site that has a History of Collard Greens, check it out!
