(YUCK) I don't really like fat back, but its works wonders for Collards. LOL I add natures own seasoning and then a Very small amout of vinager. Then I simmer them for about 4-5 hours. It's a yummy way to cook them!! Try out my way and I'll try your way out. Nikki

I do them like swiss chard. Don't boil, saute. Can't remember the shape of them, but with chard, you cut the stalks off, stack the leaves and roll into a log shape, then slice. I add them to a pan with either bacon grease (I know, I know) and then let them soften and throw in blue cheese crumbles....or real butter and sprinkle with lemon pepper!

I cook with Nourishing Traditions type ideals so it's pro animal product which may not be what you are looking for, but thought I'd throw it in
