Turnip and Mustard Greens

Turnip and Mustard Greens

1 big bundle mustard greens

1 big bundle turnip greens with roots

1/4 lb. salt pork

Cut or strip greens off stems. Wash them very well, at least 3 times. Drain in a colander and set aside.

Wash and peel the turnip roots. Cut into pieces and set aside with the greens.

Add the salt pork to a large pot and add 1 to 2 quarts water, depending on many greens you have. Bring to a boil.

Add the greens and turnips a few at a time, until they have wilted enough to get them all in the pot.

Boil greens on medium for about 1 hour. You can also simmer them on low all afternoon, the longer they cook, the better they are.

Salt and pepper to taste.
