Virginia’s Quick Greens


1-2 bags of greens (whatever type you prefer)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
3 hot peppers (chopped)
1/2 cup chopped onion
pinch of sugar
smoked meat (whatever you prefer for added flavor)
chicken soup base (creamy)


Put washed greens in a pot.
Pour vinegar over greens.
Add hot peppers, onion, and sugar, allow to set.
This opens the greens up so they will accept flavor and be tender.
Mix chicken soup base and hot water together; to taste.
Pour over greens.
There should be enough liquid to at least cover the greens.
Boil for 1 hour or until you feel the greens are done (nice and tender).

Note: The key ingredient is the soup base.
