Braised Balsamic Greens

1 Tbs. olive oil
5 cloves of garlic sliced thin
1 Bunch Dinosaur Kale washed and cut into bite sized pieces, remove thick ribs
1 Bunch Rainbow chard washed and cut into bite sized pieces
1 pinch of coarse grained sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
3-4 Tbs. aged, at least 10 years, balsamic vinegar

In a 12 inch skillet or dutch oven, over medium high heat, heat the olive oil, add the garlic to the pan and cook stiring constantly with a wooden spoon until the garlic is golden brown. Add the greens all at once and the salt and pepper. Give them a stir and add the vinegar then cover them for 2 minutes until they wilt. Remove the cover and let the vinegar reduce a bit. Stir the green and cook 2 more minutes until the greens are tender. Serve immediately.
They go well with rice and beans or pork chops.
