Ingredients

3 cups water

1/2 pound smoked turkey wings or neck

1 1/2 pounds collard greens

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions

In a 4-quart saucepan, bring the water and smoked turkey to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 1 hour.

While the turkey is cooking, wipe the collards with a damp towel, then wash 2 or 3 times or until all the dirt and grit has been removed. Chop the greens into 1/4-inch pieces; you will have 10 cups of chopped greens.

Add the collards, oil, salt, black pepper, sugar and red pepper flakes to the saucepan. Return to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 30 minutes longer. Discard the turkey before serving, or chop the turkey meat and add it to the collards.
