When done right, collard greens are the definition of southern comfort food. Collard has a mellow, earthy taste, and its thick, hardy texture makes a great vehicle for seasoning that stands up well when cooked. For anyone who has eaten flavorless, overcooked collards throughout their life, these versatile greens are worth a second look.

This recipe is a year-round side dish that will complement a backyard cookout or a holiday dinner equally well. The ham hock pairs up with our Cuban Spice blend to deliver a wallop of umami flavor. Featuring garlic, cumin, orange and oregano, this blend combines bright and savory spices for a rich and satisfying flavor.
