Directions:
Boil the turkey necks or ham hocks in about 3 quarts of water until they are tender. In the meantime, wash the collard greens through at least four washings of water in your sink. You want to make sure you have washed all remains of dirt or grit from the greens. After the boiled meat is tender put the greens in the boiling pot. Boil them until they can easily be torn with a fork. Drain and let the greens cool completely. Chop them with a vegetable chopper if desired. Place about 2 tablespoons of canola oil in a large skillet and stir fry the cooked greens until they are hot throughout. Serve with your favorite entrees.
