Southern Food...a recipe to try with more coming later

Honeyed Collard Greens

2 1/2 lbs collard greens, tough stems discarded, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup chicken broth
3 tbs vinegar, preferably cider
2tbs honey
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp drippings
1 red onion, thinly sliced
1 medium jalapeno, seeded and chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add greens; cook until tender and deep green in color. Drain; rinse with cold water until cool, which should take about 30 seconds. Firmly squeeze dry. In a bowl combine broth, vineger, honey, salt and pepper. Set aside...
In a large skillet heat bacon drippings over medium heat. Add onion, jalapeno and garlic. Cook until onion softens slightly, 2-3 minutes. Add greens; cook until heated through. Add reserved broth mixture; cook until reduced slightly.
