been making these greens for a while, they are so good. of course we could cheat and use the canned, but nothing is as good as fresh made.

How to Make Mustard and Turnip Greens


  1. tear or cut greens from large stems. discard thick stems.
  2. wash greens, soak greens, wash greens, rinse greens. Make sure greens are washed good.I cannot stress enough to CLEAN AND WASH greens well. Sand does not dissolve in cooking !!!
  3. In very large stock pot. place bacon that has been cut into 1 inch squares along with chopped onion and over medium high heat, cook until bacon is crisp and onion is transluscent. do not drain bacon drippings.
  4. squeeze water by hand out of greens and put a handful at a time into hot pan. keep pan on medium heat as you do this until all greens are in pan. they will wilt down as they cook.
  5. once greens are wilted down and bubbling, turn heat down and add seasonings. stirring occassionally.
  6. cover and simmer over medium low heat until greens are tender. about 30 minutes.
