    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb collard greens
    • 1 lb kale
    • 1 lb turnip greens
    • 1 lb mustard greens
    • 2 medium onions, chopped
    • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
    • 1 1/2 lbs turkey wings, smoked
    • salt, seasoned
    • fresh ground black pepper
    • 2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped (optional)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Fill your kitchen sink with water and wash the greens well. As you lift the greens from the sink, any grit will fall to the bottom. Repeat if necessary.
    2. 2
      Tear the greens into large pieces, and remove and discard tough stems. Place greens in a large bowl - do NOT drain in a colander.
    3. 3
      In a large pot, combine the onions, 2 cups water, oil, and jalapenos (if using). Bring to the boil over high heat.
    4. 4
      Gradually stir in the greens, letting one batch wilt before you add the next. Bury the turkey wing in the greens. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
    5. 5
      Cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until the greens are tender, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    6. 6
      Remove the turkey wing, discard the skin and bones. Chop the turkey meat and return to the pot.
    7. 7
      Use a slotted spoon to transfer the greens to a serving dish. Serve hot.

      I did not like these..After only 30 mins of cooking --the greens were still a little crunchy so I cooked them a little longer. But I will not make these again. Sorry..:(
