Best turnip greens recipe yet. 8 year old had seconds!!

Easy and good!! I didn't add the salt or sugar.

this is a delicious recipe barely missed the ham hocks at all :-)

These were delicious and I have never cared for greens. I added a tablespoon of bacon drippings and some chopped ham pieces.

Excellent! The only thing I did different was less sugar ( about 2 tbsps). Tastes just like my grandmother used to make. Thank you!
