3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (It is really worth it to use a good fruity one here—I prefer Frantoia)
1/4 pound country ham, in one chunk or slice
6 cloves garlic, peeled and mashed
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
1/2 pound greens, preferably kale (You could use mustard or turnip greens if you wanted to chase a cold, or even collards, if you wanted to make it even countrier)
Parmesan rind, diced (optional)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste.
