I’ve been Blanching Collard Greens lately and have been using them as healthy wraps for my lunches. So I decided to put together a little step by step on How To Blanch Collard Greens today!


  • 1 bunch Collard Greens
  • 2 dozen Ice Cubes
  • 5 cups Water


  1. Wash Collard Greens and cut off thick stem at the base.
  2. Use a small knife to trim the thick spine down the middle of the leaf. Cut it so the spine is as flat as can be with the leaf.
  3. Add water to a large pot and bring to a simmer.
  4. While you’re waiting for the water to simmer, fill a large bowl with Ice and fill the bowl with water. Set aside.
  5. Add 1 Collard leaf at a time to the simmering water, holding the leaf down gently with a tongs so that leaf is totally submerged in water.
  6. Simmer for 30-60 seconds.
  7. Remove leaf and immediately place in bowl of ice water.
  8. Submerge leaf for 10 seconds in ice bath.
  9. Remove and place on paper towels to dry.
  10. Continue process for each leaf.
  11. These will keep 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
  12. Use for wraps, etc.
