Collards Greens And Smoke Turkey Tails

Let me show you a smoke Turkey Tail ...It's the Turkey butt. with a lot of smoke favor.

Let Me Show You A Smoke Turkey Neck ( I will not used Turkey Necks in Greens because to many bones come loose in Greens.

Let's Talk Collards Greens

Collards aren't just for growing in the South. They are nearly as cold resistant as kale and cabbage, but are better known as a Southern green because they can tolerate more heat.

Collards grows  like trees that is the best time to pick them and after the frost fall on them.

You can make so many dishes with Collards like soups stir fry and use the leaves for rolling foods. I like to cook them this way.
