Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: Appoximately 35 minutes.

Ingredients

Directions

Stir together bouillon and water in a pan; bring to a boil over high heat. Add greens, onion, garlic, bacon, brown sugar, and salt. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes; stir occasionally. Drain the greens well and season each serving with cider vinegar to taste (give it a try; it actually enhances the flavor of the greens). If the greens are not drained, cornbread can be used to soak up the liquid, or “pot liquor.”

Yield: 3 1/2 cups. Serving size: 1/2 cup.
