Remove leaves from stems. Greens have to be cleaned to get any dirt or grit off of them. I soak mine in hot water with a little white vinegar. Rinse thoroughly after soaking.

Pour chicken broth into pot. Add garlic powder, vinegar,salt & pepper to taste. Sample BEFORE adding meat to see if broth is seasoned enough.  Then add turkey pieces. I don't really measure the spices

Pile greens on top of broth & meat. For me it's easiest to tear the collards with my hands into smaller pieces rather than cutting with a knife. And it's faster by hand! :0)

I'm using a pressure cooker. Cuts down cooking time considerably. Cook on 3/4 high heat for 45 minutes. Adjust per cooker manual. Not sure how to describe the heat setting. Hopefully this pic helps.

Final results are delicious, tender greens! I transferred to another pot because I have another bunch to cook! Big family Christmas dinner calls for more than 1 bunch!! O_o  (LOL)
