Recipe: Southern Style Turnip Greens
Southern style greens usually involve bacon or ham and at least an hour or so of simmering on the stovetop. These simple yet hearty turnip greens make a great side for any BBQ meal or Southern-inspired menu.
- 1 smoked ham hock or half a smoked ham shank (1 to 2 lb.)
- 1 quart chicken broth or water
- 3 to 4 lbs. fresh turnip greens
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 2 to 3 tsp. Wash Park All-Purpose Seasoning
- 1 Tbsp. white vinegar
Rinse ham hock and place in a large pot with broth. Bring to a boil then cover and simmer for about 20 min. Meanwhile, rinse turnip greens well, roughly chop, and toss with lemon juice. Add greens and seasoning to pot. Cover and simmer for about 45 min. or until greens are tender. Add vinegar and adjust seasoning to taste before serving.
Serve with vinegar, onion slices, and cornbread.
