  1. If your collards are not already cut up then you have to remove the thick part of the stem and cut into strips. This is clearly demonstrated in the video if you’ve never cut up collards before. Wash them thoroughly.
  2. In a large pot over medium low heat add the bacon, cooking until halfway done. Next add the onion. Cook until bacon is crisp and onion begins to brown around the edges.
  3. Add the garlic allowing to saute for 1 to 2 minutes until fragrant. Then add the paprika and crushed red pepper. Cook for 30 seconds stirring continuously being careful to not burn the paprika. Quickly deglaze with a dry red wine. I use a cabernet.
  4. Add the apple cider vinegar, chicken stock, and collards. If collards are to the top of the pot, cover and allow to wilt down for about ten minutes. Stir thoroughly, cover and reduce heat to low.
  5. It will take 1 to 2 hours to finish cooking. Stir periodically. If liquid levels fall too low add extra water or chicken stock. When tender add salt and black pepper to taste and serve.
