Collards. Length of time needed to cook.

BJE | Jan 6, 2007 06:16 PM

I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. Collards is not a usual vegetable to find in our produce section of local grocery stores. Recently I saw packages of Little Bear brand fresh Collards. Attached to the package there was a recipe. I have seen Collard recipes on this board and it looks to me like they need a long cooking time to make the leaves tender. This recipe on the package is called Curried Collards with Potatoes and the cooking time after you add the collards is very short. They say 5 to 10 minutes. Before I ruin my Collards I thought I would ask other chowhounds if this sounds right.
