Amateur Cook

Grilled Turnips with Garlic -- now there's a tasty idea.

Regina Leonard

I love turnips! this dish isn't a summer one but a comfort one.

Pot of Greens
1 pound EACH of turnip tops, collards and kale cut into strips (layer leafs ontop of each other a stack of about 10-15 leaves roll like a cigar and slice)
3 large turnip roots in 1-2 inch cubes
1 smoked hamhock (or 1 section smoked turkey wing)
2 tablspoons sugar
1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar
2 tsp crushed red pepper

Place smoked hamhock in crockpot and cover with water let cook for 3-hours on high until it falls off bone. Take liquid and meat place in a large dutch oven. Take greens place into dutch oven sprinkle with salt, pour int vinegar, sugar and pepper. Stir, cover and cook on med heat for 20 mins add turnip roots and stir cook another 25 mins until greens are tender.

Serve warm.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, it is one of my favorites---Regina


I don't eat potatoes so I use turnips in place of them,especially in soups and stews. I also like oven roasted turnips with carrots and onions and stir fried red cabbage with turnips.
