"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

1 (16 oz) bag of greens
1/4 lb bacon
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 cup veg. oil

Directions:
Directions:
Saute' bacon in large pot using chicken broth as needed so it does not stick. When bacon is cooked add collards and balance of chicken broth. Add balance of the ingredients and water in pot so greens are about 3/4 covered. Bring to a low boil then reduce to a simmer. I cook my greens for a few hours so they are very tender.Tasting as I cook them adding more of the above ingredients as needed. Make sure as they cook that you don't boil all the liquid away, add more if needed. Ending up with about 2 in. of liquid when finished. They get easier the more you cook them.
