Turnip Greens


My favorite way to eat these turnips is raw, but this is also a great recipe that uses the greens as well.

1 large bunch turnip greens                           1 onion, diced

1 small turnip, peeled and diced                  1 tablespoon lemon pepper

Dash of sugar                                             Salt to taste

6 slices bacon, diced                                    Louisiana hot-pepper sauce

Wash the greens in several changes of water in the sink until no more grit is seen. Chop the greens coarsely. Bring a large pot of water to boil and add the greens, the turnip, and the sugar. Cook for 12 to 15 minutes, or until tender. Drain. In a large skillet, sauté the bacon until it gives up its grease. Add the onion and cook 7 minutes until the onion is soft. Toss the greens with the bacon and onion. Add the lemon pepper and salt. Serve with Louisiana hot-pepper sauce.
