Greens are also a great source of nutrients, easy to grow, and inexpensive. They are a cool-weather crop, and so may help extend your growing season.
Here is the recipe I tried:
3 slices bacon
- Put bacon in a medium pot, and fill pot half-way with water. Bring to boil, and boil for about 20 minutes.
- While bacon is boiling, rinse turnip greens well. I removed most of the stems and sliced them into roughly 1-inch strips.
- Add greens to pot. Cook until they are as tender as you would like. Scoop out greens, draining water from them, and serve
- If you dice the bacon you can serve them together. I didn't do this; they're back in the fridge with the little we didn't eat.
