Patti's Screamin' Mean Greens

With a few tweaks to the recipe of the infamous and incomparable Ms. Patti Labelle, I can now make greens my young children love to eat!

Ready In:
45mins
Serves:
Units:

ingredients

  • 1 lb collard greens
  • 1 lb kale
  • 1 lb turnip greens
  • 1 lb mustard greens
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 14 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 12 lbs turkey wings, smoked
  • salt, seasoned
  • fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped (optional)

directions

  • 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.
  • Tear the greens into large pieces, and remove and discard tough stems. Place greens in a large bowl - do NOT drain in a colander.
  • In a large pot, combine the onions, 2 cups water, oil, and jalapenos (if using). Bring to the boil over high heat.
  • 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.
  • Cover the pot and reduce the heat to medium-low. Cook until the greens are tender, about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Remove the turkey wing, discard the skin and bones. Chop the turkey meat and return to the pot.
  • 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..:(
