  • 3 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup kosher salt 
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup hot sauce 
  • 2 to 3 pork shoulder bones or smoked ham hocks
  • 1/2 pound smoked pork shoulder, chopped 
  • 2 pounds collard greens, stems and ribs removed, leaves cut into 2-inch strips 


Bring 1 gallon water to simmer in a 2-gallon pot on medium heat.

Add the vinegar, salt, brown sugar and hot sauce to pot. Stir until the sugar and salt have dissolved, then add the bones or smoked ham hocks. Simmer for 25 minutes.

Add the chopped smoked pork and the collard strips to the pot and turn the heat to low. Gently simmer, uncovered, until the greens are tender, 2 to 3 hours. Serve the collard greens with as little or as much cooking liquid as you like.
