Hearty and richly sweet with a taste reminiscent of spinach, these Organic Collard Greens are green for slow braises or steaming into healthy wraps. They are a main ingredient in soul food and Southern cooking. These robust veggies stand up well to long heat and the powerhouse flavors of smoked meats and hot peppers, and like all chard varieties, it's an excellent source of vitamin C and the antioxidant beta carotene (a pre-cursor for vitamin A) as well as a good source of potassium and magnesium.
Boiling collard greens: Collards love a bath in salted water, just boil for for 15-20 minutes.
Wilting: You may also wilt them in a covered non-stick skillet over Medium-Low heat for about 15 minutes, with 1-2 cups water or chicken broth to keep greens from sticking to the pan.
Microwave: Covered microwave-safe container (vented), stir once (Tested with a 1100-watt microwave oven. If yours is lower wattage, increase cooking time; if higher, decrease time).
