Start with good collards. The closer they are to having been harvested, the more flavor you’ll have in the pot and they’ll be more tender, too. This is a “know your farmer” kind of situation. Not all collards are created equal.
At some point [Tina] said, “I was going to make those hoe cakes and a Peach Cobbler, but I’m just too tired…”. All the eyes lit up in great joy for just a second. Since I could see the disappointment that immediately followed, and I was a couple beers and some moonshine in, I volunteered my buzzed-but-able self to make the cobbler.
