 Ingredients List

  • 2 lb Mustard greens or collard
  • Greens
  • 2 lb Green cabbage
  • 3 Ham hocks -- smoked

coarsely chop the leaves. Cut the cabbage into quarters and cut the core

minutes. Add the cabbage and potatoes and cook until all vegetables are
tender, about 30 minutes. Check the seasonings and serve hot.
