• THIS IS MY RECIPE FOR SOUTHERN STYLE COLLARD GREENS, BUT I DON'T SEE WHY YOU COULDN'T USE IT FOR TURNIP GREENS. INGREDIENTS 1 bunch collard greens - rinsed, trimmed and chopped 2 smoked ham hocks 2 (10.5 ounce) cans condensed chicken broth 21 fluid ounces water 1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar salt and pepper to taste DIRECTIONS Place the collard greens and ham hocks in a large pot. Mix in the chicken broth, water, and vinegar. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 1 hour.
  • Turnip Greens 1 large bunch turnip greens 1 small turnip, peeled and diced Dash of sugar 6 slices bacon, diced 1 onion, diced 1 tablespoon lemon pepper Salt to taste Louisiana hot sauce to taste Wash the greens in several changes of water in the sink until no more grit is seen. Chop the greens coarsely. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add the greens, the turnip, and the sugar. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain. In a large skillet, sauté the bacon until it gives up its grease. Add the onion and cook 7 minutes until the onion is soft. Toss the greens with the bacon and onion. Add the lemon pepper and salt. Serve with Louisiana hot-pepper sauce. Variation: Green beans. Substitute 1 pound fresh green beans, cleaned and snapped. Omit the sugar.
