Slow Cooker Collard Greens

These collards are actually cooked on the stove however, the broth used for cooking them is made in the slow cooker.

2 Bunches of Collard Greens, Trimmed and Chopped

2 Ham Hocks or 1 Leftover Ham Bone

2 (10.5 oz.) Cans Lower Sodium Chicken Broth

1 Tbsp White Vinegar

Black Pepper to Taste

3 Cups of Water

Place ham hocks or bone in slow cooker along with broth, water, vinegar and black pepper. Cook on low for 8 hours.

Remove ham hocks or bone from slow cooker and remove any meat from the bones. Pour liquid from slow cooker into large saucepan or stock pot. Add collard greens and meat. Bring to a boil and continue boiling, stirring occasionally. Cook for one hour or until most of the liquid has evaporated and greens are tender.

Nutritional Bonus

Cooking bones for an extended period of time in liquid with a little vinegar, extracts calcium and fortifies the broth.
