Directions:
Put the ham hocks in a large pot, add 1 gallon of water and boil over moderately high heat for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, clean the greens by pulling off the leaves and rinsing them thoroughly under running water. Discard any yellow or wilted leaves and any thick stalks. Cover the greens with water and continue filling the sink with as much water as it will hold. Gently shake the greens around in the water so that any dirt falls to the bottom of the sink. Lift out the greens. Repeat the rinsing process as many times as necessary until the greens are completely free of grit.

Tear the greens into pieces about the size of your palm and add them to the pot with the hot peppers. Simmer the collard greens over moderate heat until they are very tender. they can take as little as 45 minutes and as long as 2 hours. Serve the greens with a slotted spoon.

Serve potllikker with corn bread.
