Got To Be NC
Recipe by: Lisa Prince

Braised Collards

I cooked the collards a little longer before adding the water so they could absorb the onion and garlic flavors.  This may change the healthy factor some but I enjoy collards with NC Chow Chow or I like to spice it up with Sriracha HOT chili sauce.
