  1. This is my Momma's green recipe. I love it.

  2. Take 2 (3 makes a lot) bunches of greens, wash, and cut off some of the long >stem, if it appears tough. Put greens in pot and add about 1 1/2 to a maximun of 2 inches of water to bottom of pot and a few strips of bacon cut into small pieces. Add some salt, one Tbs. of Crisco shortening, and a little sugar to taste. Greens can tend to be a little bitter, that's why we feel a little sugar is necessary.

  3. Cover pot. Cook till tender. How long is hard to say. Young tender greens will cook in about an hour. Tougher ones can take 1 1/2 hours, or longer.

  4. If you want to cook the greens with turnips, (my favorite way), cut turnips in half, then into slices about one inch thick. Add to greens after they have been cooking for about 1/2 hour. Add a little pepper if cooking greens with turnips. Good.
