1 1/2 quart water
1 hot pepper pod
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
3 cloves garlic, crushed
4 pounds fresh collard, turnip, kale or mustard greens (or mixture)
1 teaspoon sugar
salt, to taste


Place hocks in Dutch oven or large saucepan; add water, pepper pods and garlic. Cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 2 hours or until hocks are tender.

Break off stems of greens. Wash leaves thoroughly. Slice leaves into bite size pieces by rolling several leaves together and slicing in 1/4 inch strips. Add greens, sugar and salt to hocks. Cook 30 to 40 minutes or until greens are done.
