Yes, well, at least it's a Southern tradition according to my parents, and it's supposed to be with collard greens. Eating collards on New Years Day lays the foundation for a happy and prosperous year.

Per Wikipedia


Traditionally, collards are eaten on New Year's Day (along with black-eyed peas or field peas and corn bread) to ensure wealth in the coming year, as the leaves resemble folding money.

Come to think of it, the last time I had them they weren't too bad. Covered in butter and salt and pepper. Total soul food. Maybe next year.


We don't like to think of it as soul food, more like Southern food.

Yes. After the close of the War of Northern Aggression it was said that Southerners would be lucky if they had black eyed peas to eat in the coming new year. From what I've been told it started either in Richmond or through Sherman's march route.

To 3 pounds greens, add 1 pint of gasoline. Toss. Apply match or other source of ignition (from a distance). Allow to burn furiusly until greens are cindered. Use leaf blower to disperse cinders. Enjoy remainder of meal.

Oh, and collards rock.


Ours will be ready in about an hour. Got quite a kick to them this year.

OK
We cooked a lot so adjust if nececery

Greens from 14 collards about 7 bunches
1/2 cup sugar
1 to 1 1/4 quart of Cider vinegar
2 tbs of red pepper to taste
Salt and black pepper to taste
4 ham hocks
water
1 tbs onion powder
1 tbs garlic powder

Wash your collards twice then take the stems off and tear into small pieces. Wash again and put in a large stock pot with everything except the water. Just cover with water and simmer for 3 hours. When the greens have all turned a deep green adjust the seasoning.

It is better the next day.
