This is an amazing vegetable. Being a southern girl I have liked greens for a long time, but I have come to love greens since I started cooking them. If you want an adventure into a wonderful vegetable with so much character, vitamins and fiber - don't over look these not so glamorous tops to not so tasty roots! They may suprise you!
To cook Turnip Greens; (buy a bag - its a lot of greens but that's how they roll)
rinse well in a sink full of water
prepare the stock with 2-3 tablespoons of oil - I use bacon grease because you really don't get that much calories since you are just cooking it in the stock but flavor is awesome
4-6 beef bullion cubes
about a tablespoon of Liquid Smoke (near the Tabasco at the grocery store - a southern cook must have)
about six cups of water
pull greens out of their bath in the sink
place in boiling stock
cook 5-7 minutes
salt and pepper to taste
Once they start cooking, they are like spinach, they shrink a lot...just add them as you can to a large roasting pan...
if you like it spicy add pepper/vinegar or some juice from jarred jalapenos - won't take much
