How to Make It

Step 1

Melt margarine in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 7 minutes. Stir in sugar and pepper. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook 20 minutes or until golden, stirring frequently. Remove onion mixture from pan; set aside.

Step 2

Place pan coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until hot. Gradually add turnip greens, and cook 10 minutes or until wilted, stirring frequently. Add onion mixture to turnip greens; stir gently. Sprinkle with hot pepper sauce, if desired. Serve immediately.

I thought it was ok. Funny, my kids like it better than I did. I thought it was bitter. Maybe it wouldn't be so bitter if the brown sugar and margarine were increased.

The sweetness of the onion offsets the somewhat bitterness of the greens in this dish. I used butter instead of margarine (haven't used margarine in 30 years). I had garden-fresh turnip greens. We didn't use the hot sauce. It is a recipe I'd make about once a year.

I actually liked this. My family didn't like it at all, but I thought it was pretty good. I added salt too. I have made turnip greens the old fashioned southern way and the family likes that. I will make this again, but only when the kids aren't home to eat. :)
