I found a ”Southern Living” recipe. I haven’t tried it, but the day isn’t over!! I love collard greens and I LOVE purple (red) onions. When I was pregnant with my daughter almost 25 years ago, I had a craving for onions. I would have crawled on my hands and knees for 100 miles to get them if I had to! I thought once the pregnancy was over so would the craving for them be over…I was WRONG! Nothing taste quite as good as a sweet onion to me. Add greens, fried cornbread, and southern fried chicken to those onions and I am in sheer heaven!! Now you know why this recipe title caught my eye. Enjoy, precious reader!!
3 (16-oz.) packages fresh collard greens
2 medium-size red onions, finely chopped
2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
