• 2 tablespoons minced garlic or to taste
  • 5 cups collard greens, stems discarded and leaves chopped
  • 3/4 cup water, or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 (15 oz) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep pan with a lid, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove the bacon pieces from the pan, and set aside.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and stir the sliced onion into the hot bacon fat. Cook and stir the onion until it begins to brown, scraping the bits off the bottom of the pan, about 8 minutes. Add the garlic, and cook and stir 4 more minutes. Return the bacon to the pan, stir in the collard greens, and toss gently until the greens are wilted, about 3 minutes.
  3. Pour in the water to almost cover the collard greens, and stir in the brown sugar, vinegar, crushed red pepper, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer the collard greens until very tender, 1 to 2 hours.
  4. About 1/2 hour before serving, stir the cannellini beans into the collard greens, and return to a simmer.
