“This is an old Southern style recipe for country greens that my grandma used to make at all our holiday meals. It was a hit even with the kids.”

Directions

  1. Rinse the mustard and turnip greens thoroughly to remove gritty dirt, and place in a 12 quart pot with 8 cups of water. Add the butter, pickle juice, bacon and onion, and bring to a rolling boil.
  2. Continue cooking at a full boil for 20 minutes, then reduce the heat to low, and simmer for an additional 30 minutes, until tender. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

I made this recipe twice over the holidays--once with bacon and once with some leftover Christmas ham instead. Both were a success! My Southern husband and in-laws loved it. Many thanks from a formerly clueless Yankee!

EXCELLENT!!! I do this on a much smaller scale (2 bunches of just turnip greens) for our smaller family of 5. All my 3 toddlers just love it too! Sometimes, I use some pepperoncini juice for some extra zing.

It really annoys me when reviewers change the recipe and then give it a bad review! I've never been a big greens fan, but I made this for a big family gathering, and everyone loved it. I followed the recipe exactly and it was great. I've added my own touches here and there, as does every other cook I know. You have to add your own personal touch. Thanks for a great recipe.
