1 smoked turkey wing or ham hock

1 garlic clove, minced

¼ teaspoon crushed red chile flakes

2 cups water

¼ cup Maker's Mark® Bourbon

2 bunches collard greens (1½ pounds)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. 1. In a large saucepot, combine the turkey, garlic, chile, water, and bourbon. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to simmer while you prepare the greens, at least 15 minutes. 2. Strips the leaves off the greens from the center stems and ribs. Cut the leaves into ½-inch strips crosswise. Rinse well, then add to the simmering liquid. Simmer until the leaves are tender, about 20 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 3. Transfer the turkey wing to a cutting board. When cool enough to handle, pull the meat from the bones and shred. Discard the bones and stir the meat into the greens. Serve hot.
