Southern Turnip Greens

Yields 8-12 servings

Ingredients:

4 lbs turnip greens- starting weight before washing, trimming and chopping (note: may need to add batches of greens as they are cooking down)

4 ounces Loveless Cafe Smoked Bacon

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
2/3 cup apple cider vinegar

1 medium onion, chopped

half pound Loveless Cafe Country Ham, diced

1/4 cup salt
6 cups water (note: add water if needed so the liquid meets the surface of the cooked greens in the pot)

Roughly chop raw bacon and render in a large stockpot over low heat for 5 minutes before adding chopped onion. Increase to medium high heat and cook until onions are translucent. Add diced ham, crushed red pepper, brown sugar, vinegar and water and bring to a boil. Add cleaned and chopped greens and simmer for approximately four hours, stirring occasionally and adding extra water if needed. Once greens are fully cooked and tender, taste for seasoning and add salt if desired.
