Total time:
  • 5 bunches kale
  • 3 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 onion, sliced thin
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 smoked ham hocks (or 1 large)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 3 quarts stock
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt
  1. Clean and chop kale. Be sure to remove any stem pieces.
  2. Heat oil in a large, deep pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, stir to coat. Place the kale into the hot pan in batches to let it wilt down. Put the lid on and let it cook down for a minute. Put more Kale batches in and keep turning them over until all is in and wilted down. This should only take a few minutes. Add stock, bay leaves, vinegar, sugar and pepper flakes. Cook for 45 minutes to one hour. Remove ham hock and bones. Cut down and add ham back to pot.
