1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add a good pinch of salt. Strip out any woody stems. Roughly chop your greens.
2. Plunge in to the boiling water. Swirl through. Drain as soon as the greens are just soft but still a bright, glossy green.
3. Put your pan back on the heat. Add the cider. Let it boil up and reduce a little. Turn off the heat. Whisk in the butter with a pinch of mixed spice.
4. Fold the greens through. Season to taste.
