Ingredients:  
2 - 3 medium smoked ham hocks
5 pounds of collards (several large bunches)
2 tsp of salt

Directions:
Directions:
Add 2 or 3 smoked ham hocks into a large (6 quart) pot of water. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Reduce heat and cook for about 1 1/2 hours. Add more water as it boils down. The ham hocks should be falling apart before you add the collard greens.

Take the collard greens and separate the leaves. Now rinse each leaf individually under cold running water. After you rinse the collard greens thoroughly, stack several leaves on top of each other. Roll these leaves together. Then slice the leaves into thin strips using a cutting board and large knife.

Next, add your collard greens to the pot. Since this is a lot of collards, you will need to add them in batches. As they wilt down, add more. Add your salt, cover and cook for thirty minutes on medium heat. Stir every few minutes to distribute the smoked meat taste evenly.

Taste to confirm they are the tenderness you prefer. Serve with your favorite meat dish.
