Turnip Greens

<p>This is a very simple throw together dish. It is full of great flavor and yet simple to make. This is just one of many southern dishes that many families have. All different yet equally delicious.</p>


<p>2 Onions, Diced</p>
<p>2 Tbsp. Olive Oil or Butter</p>
<p>Salt and Pepper ( to taste)</p>
<p>1 pound Turnip Greens, Chopped Roughly</p>
<p>3 c. Chicken Broth</p>
<p>Water if needed</p>
<p>2 Tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar</p>


<p>(1.) In a large pot ( with fitted lid) Over low heat add in the Oil. When the Oil is hot add in the onions, 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Cook until tender but not browned. About 10-12 minutes. Add in the Chicken Broth and a handful or two of the turnip greens at a time until all greens are wilted into the broth. Stir it around a bit to help it out. When all of the greens are added to the pot cover with a lid and cook for 2 hours. Check the mixture often and stir. Add more water if water level gets to low.</p>
<p>(2.) 20 Minutes before the mixture is done add in the Apple Cider Vinegar and stir around. Cover and let finish cooking the 20 minutes. Remove the lid and add salt and pepper to taste.  Pour into a serving bowl carefully and serve.</p>
<p>I like serving this with Beans and Cornbread or as a side to fried chicken. The flavor of the Turnip Greens is bold but not over powering. It is not a fatty dish so I don’t feel bad or heavy after I eat this, and I get to eat seconds.  If you want to you can throw in some Bacon , diced about 4 pieces or throw in a Ham Hock.  You can get a Ham Hock at your local grocer or just ask for one if they don’t have one out. Sometimes I want it spicy so I throw in some Red Pepper Flakes for heat at the start of the cooking process.</p>
