    Adrienne in Reisterstown's Note:

    Try the Smoked Turkey Braised Greens for a down-home comfort food taste. In the southern regions of the USA, we love greens like collards and kale. Unfortunately I was raised like most good southern girls to boil those greens to death. This recipe shows you a new technique for getting succulent greens without losing the nutrients from boiling. I made these greens for Christmas dinner using smoked ham instead of turkey and -- wow!!! It was out of this world good! My husband Keith hates collards but he had a third helping of these AND I caught him nibbling in the kitchen later that night! Enjoy!

      Really tasty way to get your greens! I had the deli cut me 2 slices of smoked turkey breast on #4, and used collard greens. I can't wait to try it with dandelion or chard.
