Attached File I have some greens in the winter garden ready to be cut, been growing them for a long time. I cook the greens down then dump out the water, I then add some beef broth, bacon or ham hock with some pepper sauce. Collard, mustard, radish greens, what ever is available fresh (do what you need in a pinch). The biggest fat stems are cut away, but it will likely cook down if one doesn't do that.
