Collard Greens Like Grandma Used to Make

I recently joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) partnership and now have a refrigerator filled with veggies I have never put on my grocery list let alone had to cook. Collard Greens is one exception however. While as an adult, I have never intentionally bought them, as a kid I ate them all the time from my grandmother's kitchen. Making them in my kitchen was almost like being back in hers. I found this recipe at

1 bunch collard greens - rinsed, trimmed and chopped
2 smoked ham hocks
2 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed chicken broth
21 fluid ounces water
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
salt and pepper to taste

Place the collard greens and ham hocks in a large pot. Mix in the chicken broth, water, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 1 hour.
