  1. Clean collards.wash well and remove big vein in middle. Chop coarsely.(i ususally roll the leaves up together and just cut on the long side). Put in a large pot(it will be quite full but they will cook down quickly).
  2. Place collards on stove add 2 cups broth and begin to cook.
  3. Begin to fry bacon in large frying pan.when bacon is crispy remove from pan and set aside and add onion to the bacon fat and cook until its getting tender.
  4. Once onion is cooked pour onion and bacon fat over collards and stir well. Crumble bacon into bite sized pieces and add to collards.
  5. Add all seasonings and stir again.
  6. At this point place lid on pot and allow collards to begin to cook down. Watch and make sure you continue to check that they have enough chicken broth. You will have to add some periodically so they have enough broth to cook inches You dont want them floating in the broth so just add a little at a time.
  7. After the collards begin to boil you can turn them back to medium-low heat and let them simmer - stir and add broth as needed. You will eventually use most of the broth.
  8. Cook for about 2 hours until the collards are good and tender.You can taste the broth thru-out the cooking and adjust seasonings to your own taste.
