TURNIP GREENS

8 oz. smoked joe bacon or salt pork with rind or ham hocks
2 lb. turnip greens
10 c. water
1 tsp. salt [if you use salt pork, you may not need additional salt]
1 tsp. red pepper flakes

Chop smoked joe bacon or salt pork, cutting to, but not through, rind. If you use ham hocks, let them remain whole. Discard stems of greens and any damaged portions. Tear up large leaves (should have about 12 cups). In large kettle bring water to boil; add salt pork, greens, red pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon salt; simmer covered for 2 hours -- adding more water if needed. Season broth to taste.

Yes, they are supposed to be really soft.

It is one of the big differences between soul food and southern cooking. Most black people like their greens cooked really tender, while I understand that white people like theirs cooked briefly.

No insult taken at all. It was an honest question. I respect honest questions and will answer them the best I can! :D

How I love turnip greens and TURNIPS!!! And the longer cooked, the better!

The only thing I would add would be a few tabasco peppers that had been soaking in vinegar for a few months! YOWEE YUM!!!

choclatechef, you and I need to get together...or move closer...or something!
