Thursday, May 15, 2014 Greens And Turnip Bottoms

Turnip greens are most often prepared by cooking them in boiling water. You can flavor them in a variety of ways, but the simplest way to season turnip greens is with dry salt pork. Here's an easy way to fix these greens.( you can use meat of your choice).

Dry salt pork is a good taste for these Greens. add cut up pieces to a  pot and adding a 4 tablespoon bacon dripping cook until lightly brown.

 Add about 2 pounds of  clean and cut up Turnips Greens. Don't worry they will cook down.

(You can mix Mustard Greens with Turnips Greens) and 2 cups of water to salt pork and bacon dripping and cook about 30 mins on med heat.

Adding 2 cups cut up Turnip bottoms on top of cooked greens and cook for 10 mins or fork tender. adding salt to taste.

Serve with Cornbread
