Try this hearty side with Memphis-style barbecue. Cane syrup is a common Southern sweetener used in everything from cookies to vegetables. If you can't find it, use its close cousin, molasses, or honey. Pepper vinegar offsets the syrup's sweetness.

How to Make It

Cook onion, garlic, and chopped bacon in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat 6 minutes or until tender. Add 4 cups water and next 5 ingredients (through salt); bring to a boil. Gradually add greens. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Uncover; cook 1 hour or until very tender. Serve with pepper vinegar, if desired.
