Soak 4 bushels of collard greens in hot water (out of the faucet) for 45 minute with approximately 1½ tablespoons of table salt sprinkled over the leaves.
Rinse – And re-soak in hot water (with another 1 ½ tablespoon of salt) for another 15 minutes.
Rinse Again – and re-soak for the third time in hot water (with another 11/2 tablespoons of salt) for approximately 30 minutes so your Collard Greens will be good and clean.
Use a 5-quart pot.
Cut up 2 slices of thick bacon and 2 ham hocks. Put them into 12 cups of boiling water.
