Turnip Greens with Spicy Squash Relish


Here is the "greens" portion of our New Year's Day meal.  Turnip greens picked fresh from a friend's garden and brought home to be washed and trimmed and put directly into the cooking pot.  You can't beat that for freshness!

Topped with my home canned Spicy Squash Relish (recipe found here) that was the turnip greens crowning glory!

12 cups of packed, washed, and trimmed turnip greens
3 cups chicken broth
For seasoning you can choose from the following or use a little of each:  chopped bacon, bacon grease, or smoked ham hock

Put all ingredients in a medium sized Dutch oven.  Bring to a boil and then reduce heat so you have a gentle simmer.  Cover and let simmer for a few hours, stirring occasionally.  Add additional liquid as needed.  Taste and add salt and pepper if needed.
