These authentic southern style collard greens are one of my favorite ways to eat my vegetables. The tender greens cooked in flavorful bison bone broth are the perfect match for our delicious wild boar bacon, a favorite for its complex and delicious flavor. Whether you choose to use our best selling wild boar bacon or our new applewood smoked duck bacon this is going to be a side that you make again and again. Even people who think they don’t like to eat vegetables will love these.
Why I Love Cooking With Bone Broth
Feel free to substitute the bison bone broth for chicken broth or whatever else you have on hand. Personally, I prefer the bison broth because it has such rich flavor. Bone broth will add a wonderful thickness and substance to anything you cook with it. It’s full of nutrients, chock full of collagen and bursting with rich flavor. If you have it available, I highly recommend cooking with it any chance you get! We offer bags of bones specifically selected to create the tastiest and most nourishing bone broth.
A Delicious & Sustainable Choice
Our Southwestern wild boar roam the forests, foraging their natural diet. They love to eat berries, nuts, roots and tubers which give their meat its unique and delectable flavor profile. They’re trapped under the supervision of specialized veterinarians and butchered by a small scale, species specific facility. Just like all of our products, we care about where this meat comes from. Wild boar are actually an invasive species to North America, and their population continues to grow. They ruin crops and disrupt the growth of endangered plants in forests by digging in the soil. When we eat humanely trapped wild boar meat it helps to protect our food supply and forest ecosystems.
Once You Go Wild Boar, You’ll Never Go Back
People are always asking us about the best ways to eat wild boar. If you’re used to eating pork, the nutty and delicious flavor of wild boar meat will blow your mind. It’s so much more flavorful and satisfying than conventional pork. Customers tell us all the time that they find themselves unable to go back to eating conventional pork after trying out this meat. In addition to the unbeatable flavor, wild boar meat offers a multitude of health benefits that blow pork out of the water. It’s lower in total fat and calories while offering more omega 3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals. We are big believers in the advantages of eating wild meat and the nutritional profile of wild boar is a perfect example of this.
