How to Make It
Cut off and discard tough stems and discolored leaves from greens. Wash greens thoroughly and drain.
Cook salt pork in a large Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring frequently, until crisp and brown.
Add water, onion, sugar, salt, pepper, and greens; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Cover and simmer 45 minutes or until tender.
