Collard Greens ~ Benefits and Uses of Collard Greens



What is a Collard Green?  Collard Greens are grown for their large, thick, dark-colored, edible, yet slightly bitter leaves and as a garden ornamental. They are classified in the same cultivar group as kale and spring greens as they are genetically similar. The name "collard" is a corrupted form of the word "colewort" (cabbage plant).

Collard Greens are available year-round, but most tasty and nutritious in the cold months after first frost. For the best texture, leaves should be picked before maturity at which stage the leaves will be thicker and may need to be cooked differently than newer leaves. 

Collards are widely considered a nutritious source of vitamin C and soluble fiber, and contain nutrients with potent anticancer properties such as diindolylmethane and sulforaphane.  They are high in vitamin K.
