How do you clean and cook fresh collard greens?
Wash the leaves by swishing them vigorously in a bowl of cold water.
Pull the leaves out of the water, re-fill the bowl with clean water and repeat until you no longer see any grit coming off.
It usually takes about 3 cycles for farm-fresh greens.

Can you overcook collard greens?
I think it is nearly impossible to overcook collard greens. On the stove top this usually translates to anywhere between one and a half hours to four hours. In a slow-cooker -provided you have enough ‘pot liquor’ (cooking liquid) you can easily let them simmer away overnight.
