We can all agree that nothing beats some well seasoned collard greens. Packed with antioxidants, calcium, and cholesterol reducing properties, this side dish serves up some feel good bites. But what we can’t seem to agree on is cook time.  

Some people claim that collards should only take 15-18 minutes, while others firmly believe good collards should take an entire afternoon. Well, we’re here to set the record straight that this week’s collard greens from Hepworth Farms should only take a maximum of twenty minutes. Because these greens are FROZEN! Frozen collards need less prepping than fresh greens, making this a quick and easy fix. Set them in a pot to simmer with butter, olive oil, and sriracha. Or saute them up with some broth and seasoning on a stove top. Your options are endless, but always savory!
