- 1 quart water
- 6-7 slices smoked turkey bacon
- 8 quarts greens; washed, stems removed
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
Pour the water into a large, 8 quart pot, add the turkey and bring to a boil. Cover, turn heat down and allow to simmer for 10 min.
Wash the greens well, remove the stems and tear the greens in half. Add the greens to the pot along with the salt and sugar. Over low heat, allow the greens to simmer gently for about 30 minutes, or until wilted and tender; covered. Stir the greens around every so often as they cook.
Taste and season as desired. I like to put a splash of vinegar (any kind) in the greens when they’re done cooking.
Even my children (well, 3 out of 4) will eat these greens. 🙂
*Makes about 4 adult sized servings.
