FAQs about collards
Blanch the collards in salted water before cooking. Cooking bitter greens with other flavors, like sausage or bacon, complements them. Adding an acidic aspect, like vinegar or citrus juice, also contrasts well with collards. Braising collards through slow cooking will remove the bitterness and soften the hard leaves.
Collards offer a lot in terms of nutritional value and can help individuals with certain health concerns, including heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Collards have close to a 400 percent daily value of vitamin K, which is a vitamin that helps improve calcium absorption. A large intake of this vitamin decreases the risk of osteoporosis and bone fractures. Collards also contain fiber, which helps to reduce inflammation and regulate digestion. They also contain vitamins A and C, which are important for tissue growth and a strong immune system.
Some may want to substitute mustard greens for collards. Collards are quite mild in flavor compared to mustard greens, which are quite spicy. They don't make great substitutes for each other, though, as their flavors are different. If you are trying to use something besides collard greens, the closest flavor profiles are spinach, kale, and chard.
