Remove and discard the stems and ribs of the greens, place the leaves in a sink or large pot of cold water, and swish around to remove all the dirt and grit, repeating the procedure with more fresh water until greens are clean. Tear the leaves into several pieces each and set aside.

Place the ham hock or salt meat in a large pot and add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low, simmer for 15 minutes, and add the sugar and salt. Return to a boil and gradually add the torn leaves. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and simmer the greens till soft and tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
