A southern classic, this is my husband's favorite greens. It may not be the exact way that all southern cooks prepare their greens (because nobody taught me how to cook them,) but it is my own recipe and is delicious, especially alongside black-eyed peas and cornbread. It's great for the traditional New Year's meal to bring good fortune!

1/4 c
chopped/diced sweet onion
1

How to Make DOWN SOUTH TURNIP GREENS

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place frozen greens, chopped onion & ham hock (or diced ham) in a dutch oven or stock pot.
  • 2Fill pot with enough water to generously cover, but not so much as to boil over.
  • 3Add freshly ground black pepper to taste.
  • 4Bring to boil, over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally to separate the frozen greens. When greens are all separated, reduce heat to medium-low, cover with lid & let simmer for 2 hours or more, checking liquid level occasionally. You may remove lid during last half hour of cooking, if desired, to reduce liquid (you may need to increase heat to medium.)
  • 5Taste for seasoning; add salt and pepper as needed.
  • 6Serve hot with chopped egg and cider vinegar for each serving.
  • 7Cover & refrigerate leftovers.

Wow... did summer fly by or what? In my mind, Memorial Day was last weekend. Summer's unofficially coming to an end, but I'm not going to let the weekend go...
