Mamaw English's Fried Cabbage and Turnips
Family Tested & Approved
turnips, halved and sliced
onion, halved and thinly sliced
In a large skillet, brown bacon, crumble and drain on a paper towel. Reserve for later.
To skillet and bacon drippings, add turnips and onion slices tossing and cooking until onions are translucent, and turnips start to soften, (sometimes I let them brown a little).
Add shredded cabbage to skillet, stiring gently to coat with drippings.
When cabbage begins to wilt, add water, sugar, salt and pepper, stir to blend, cover and cook until cabbage is softened, stir in reserved bacon and serve.
