In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat on medium for a couple of minutes. Add olive oil. Add article and onion and cook approximately 5 minutes. Add collards to the pot, stir and cover and cook for 5 minutes.
Add cut up ham and broth. Salt and pepper to taste. Lower heat to medium-low, cover and cook for 25 minutes. Add both cans of black eye peas and stir. Cover and cook another 10-15 minutes. Great served with corn bread!
