Being from a family from the South, I'm always looking for good Southern recipes. This recipe for turnip greens was the best I've found. Very easy to make and my wife loved it. The only thing I had to do was add more water while the greens were boiling (don't walk away from a boiling pot). I let them simmer several minutes longer just because my wife came home late for work. The greens were excellent and earned a place in the recipe box.
