Level:
Easy
Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound chopped bacon
  • 3 cups chopped yellow onions
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 6 cups water
  • 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
  • 6 pounds assorted greens, such as mustard greens, collard greens, turnip greens, kale and spinach, washed and stemmed
Directions

In a large pot, saute the bacon until slightly crisp. Add the onions and season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Cook 6 to 7 minutes, until the onions are wilted and golden. Add the brown sugar and stir to dissolve. Add the shallots and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes. Add the water and vinegar and mix well. Begin adding the greens, a third at a time, pressing them down as they begin to wilt. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook, uncovered, until the greens are soft, about 1 hour and 15 minutes. Serve hot.
