Collards are part of the cabbage family and are a culinary staple in the Deep South, where they’re traditionally cooked in a long, slow braise. Collards are usually paired with ham hocks and other pork for flavour and richness. In Ireland, kale would be the most similar to collards for the purposes of replicating this classic recipe.
