Turnip Greens (substitute Kale, Mustard, or Collards)
1 tablespoon bacon drippings or a few pieces of bacon chopped and fried
2 to 3 ham shanks or a meaty ham bone or ham hocks
1 1/2 cups chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 bags of “Glory” brand Turnip, Mustard, Kale, or Collard greens. The bags are found with the packaged salads.
Roots to taste – turnips, rutabagas, carrots
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 chopped jalapeño (optional)
salt and pepper, to taste
In a large pot, heat bacon dripping. Add the onions, ham shanks or ham bone; cook, stirring, until onions are wilted. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute longer. Add the chicken broth and roots, bring to a boil. Add the greens, a few handfuls at a time, adding more as the first batch wilts. Reduce heat to medium-low; add Worcestershire sauce. Cover and simmer for 30 – 40 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Serve with pepper sauce.
