Southern Greens is always a welcome sight on any Southerner's table. These greens are very flavorful. I use whatever greens I have on hand at the time, be it turnip, mustard, collards or kale and even a mix of any of these. The country ham and sautéed veggies gives it a wonderfully savory flavor. Delicious served with a skillet of cornbread !
