Collard Greens

2 lbs collard greens
1 ham hock
6 slices of cooked bacon
2 TBSP onion flakes
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1 TBSP garlic, minced
2 – 3 tsp. salt

Clean and wash greens. Remove the tough stems and ribs. Cut greens into one inch slices and place them into a deep pot. Add onions, ham hock, bacon, red pepper, garlic and salt. Add enough water to fully cover the greens and cook on medium-high heat for about 1 hour or until the greens reach your desired texture.
