Turnip Greens And Hog Jowl

Yield 6 to 8 servings


  • 1 bunch (about 3 pounds) turnip greens
  • 1/2 pound hog jowl
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 to 8 poached eggs (optional)
  • Cornbread (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Cut off and discard tough stems and discolored leaves from greens. Wash greens thoroughly in cold water several times; drain slightly. Set aside.

  2. Place hog jowl in a large Dutch oven; add water to cover. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 45 minutes.

  3. Add greens and salt; cook over low heat until steam begins to form. Reduce heat; cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, 1 1/2 hours or until greens are tender. Add water, if needed.

  4. Serve turnip greens and hog jowl with poached eggs and cornbread, if desired.
