Traditional Southern Turnip Greens

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 bunch fresh turnip greens with roots
  • 1 medium piece salt pork
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons bacon drippings, butter, or margarine
  • Pinch of sugar (optional)

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Strip the stems from the greens (unless they’re very tender) and wash thoroughly. Place in a saucepan and add the pork, water, and salt. Cook, covered, for 45 minutes over medium heat, or until tender. Remove the pork and pour the greens into a colander to drain. Place in a pan and chop scissor-like with two knives. If necessary, add more salt to taste. Keep hot and add the bacon drippings and a pinch of sugar.
