Hi, how are you? I see some of the recipes use collards. This may seem like a silly question but, are they the leaves you buy in the produce dept uncooked. How exactly do you use them? Thanks for always responding and helping so much.
Yes. You can put them in smoothies raw or cook them like greens.
