Wash collard greens thoroughly. Cut off stems and discard. Coarsely chop collard greens and set aside. (You should have about 9 cups packed.) In a 4-quart Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook about 5 minutes or until tender.
Add collard greens, chicken broth, smoked turkey bone, and pepper. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer about 1 hour or until collard greens are tender. Remove smoked turkey bone and drain off any excess liquid. Serve warm with a slotted spoon. Makes 6 (1/3-cup) servings.
  • *Test Kichen Tip: If using a turkey drumstick, remove meat and reserve for another use; use only the bone for this recipe.
