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


  • 1tear or cut greens from large stems. discard thick stems.
  • 2wash 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 !!!
  • 3In 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.
  • 4squeeze 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.
  • 5once greens are wilted down and bubbling, turn heat down and add seasonings. stirring occassionally.
  • 6cover and simmer over medium low heat until greens are tender. about 30 minutes.
