Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Perfect, perfect, perfect for your next potluck or cookout. The Crew and I loved the mix of vegetables and ham hock. And even though the recipe calls for jalapeno, don't let that scare you! There's just enough to add a hint of flavor without overwhelming the dish with heat. Enjoy!

    Yum, sounds like my Grandama's recipe. Can't wait to try it. She fixed turnip greens the same way. This and a pot of pinto beans and corn bread, happy happy!! lol
