|A delish bowl of greens with smoked turkey|
And... we don't eat pork in my house, so I used smoked turkey meat. Yum!
Mixed Greens Recipe- Turnip and Mustard
Ingredients:1 16oz lb of turnip greens
1 16 oz bag of mustard greens
~2lbs of smoked turkey meat (wings are probably best)
½ a medium white onion chopped and divided (1/4thcup and 1/4th cup)
2 green onions chopped (should have 2-3 stems in the bulb) green part only, discard the blub
2 TBS apple cider vinegar
1 TBS Lawry’s seasoning salt
1 tsp black pepper
2 tsp garlic powder
One dash cayenne pepper
1 tsp of sugar
Add smoked turkey, 1/4th of chopped white onion and 1 bulb chopped green onion to pot. Sprinkle with Lawry’s (1 tsp) black pepper (1/2 tsp) and garlic powder (1/2 tsp). Add water to cover meat completely.
Boil, then simmer on med low flame until meat is very tender and falling off the bone. If water boils down too low, add more. I boiled my smoked turkey for 2 hours. After boiling, reserve water (do not throw out), take out meat and cut into chunks. You can do your meat the night before, if you want. That’s what I did and put everything in the fridge overnight.
Put your greens remaining onions and chopped meat in the smoked turkey water. Add additional water if needed. Add remaining spices, sugar and vinegar.
Bring to boil and simmer partially covered for 1 hour or until greens are tender.
