Delilah's Restaurant Collard Greens


  • 2 whole smoked turkey wings or 2 smoked ham hocks, cracked
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon whole black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons seasoning salt
  • 3 bunches collard greens, or others of your choice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • Vinegar, for serving, optional
  • Chopped onion, for garnish, optional


  1. Fill a large stockpot 1/3 with water. Add smoked meat and seasoning. Bring water to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until meat falls apart when touched with tongs or fork.
