ppl down south used to have 'greens' and I think there was a ham hock involved (which I wouldn't even buy). I know I cook them, I guess like spinach, but what seasoning can I use.
(This is how I prepare kale, chard, collard greens... I imagine turnip greens would fare just as well, but make no promises.)
Traditionally, they are boiled with ham hock or bacon. Adds a great smoky, rich flavor.
bacon makes everythng taste better :-) I'm sad to have given it up :-(
start out by washing very well to remove any grit. I like to remove the tough ribs, if any, and blanche them in a large pot of boiling water to get rid of any bitter taste. After they are blanched, I saute them with a very small amount of olive oil, garlic, salt & pepper.
My dad used to grow swiss chard and I loved that, but never see it in the store. I'm hoping this is similiar. Can't wait to have my own garden.
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
