How to Cook Turnip Greens
Turnip greens are leafy green vegetables that are often served during traditional holiday meals in North America. These healthy greens are harvested from turnip plants. Not only are the leaves edible, but so are the roots.
In most areas, turnip green leaves are only harvested during the late Fall, Winter and in Spring when their flavor is not too strong.
Turnip green recipe ingredients may include salt pork, bacon, pepper, herbs, cooking oils, wines, baking powder, or other foods.
Cooking methods generally include boiling the leaves for long periods. Turnip greens can also be simmered with a small amount of liquid, steamed or added to soups.
