Collards

by

Description:

Like broccoli, Brussels sprouts and cabbage, collard greens have a bitter taste because they contain so much healthful calcium. There are lots of ways to tone down the bitterness. Because they have plenty of vitamin A, vitamin C, folate and fiber in addition to calcium, collards deserve a place in your diet. Choose bunches with crisp, dark green leaves with no yellowing around the edges and cook them within five days of purchase.
