They say anytime you eat collards on New Year'€™s Day, good fortune will come your way. Anyone who cooks collards is indeed fortunate any time of year, because they are a nutritious, delicious way to get your greens. The secret to good collards is not to complicate them. You can buy fresh collards or by the bag,€“ bagged collards are easier to work with because they are already washed and cut. Seasoned with pork, salt and lots of pepper, fill a bowl with collards and a piece of cornbread and you'€™ll be hard pressed to find a tastier green veggie.
