What exactly are collard greens and how do I cook them?

Heidi cooks and bakes | Mar 29, 2011 01:46 PM

I love, Love, LOVE collard greens! I always get them when they are on the menu. However, growing up here in NJ, I really don't know if they are a vegetable called collard greens, or the tops of some other kind of green. I've never seen them labeled as such at Shop-Rite. Did I mention that I really LOVE them?

I'd really like to buy some and cook them up. I won't have any problem eating them every night as leftovers. But I have no idea how to cook them, once I figure out what exactly they are. So, please fill me in. And if you have a great recipe, I need that too. I'm dying to make some of my own. Have I mentioned how much I LOVE collard greens?!
