Southern Turnips and Greens

"Great flavor for a vegetable! Easily found in produce section of grocery. The root is purplish and has green leafy tops. You'll find these turnips in many southern cafes which have home cooked meals. Cornbread is the bread choice to go along with this vegetable dish."

    I love turnips and the roots. This was great. UPDATE: I made these again and they were just as good as the first time. I have some leftovers since I'm the only one that eats them.

    Thank you so much for this recipe. I never learned how to cook turnips when I was younger and this year I wanted some so bad. The recipe was perfect and so very good.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

<p>Thanks for taking the time to stop by My Page! I am married to a quiet, but fun loving guy who cleans up the kitchen!! I have grandchildren who I adore. I am retired from being a paralegal and a real estate agent. I have also been a substitute teacher for the elementary grades in the public school system. All of my recipes are the tried and true type. Many of them have come from my 48 years of cooking, my mother's recipe box or other relatives. I like Taste of Home magazine and I am a big fan of foodnetworkTV. I am a southern girl and enjoy comfort foods!!! I am a big cookbook collector and have been for years. I enjoy baking desserts most of all. I also enjoy games on my laptop, growing flowers, lunches with friends, babysitting grandchildren, photography and traveling. Since life is so short I try to count my blessings each day and give to the less fortunate. I had gotten into a rut on what to cook. Therefore, I am so happy I found the Recipezaar site. Pet Peeve: People with a negative attitude. MY RATING SYSTEM: 5 stars - Excellent in taste. May have minor change. 4 stars - Adjustment in ingredients for flavor. 3 stars - Fair, but not sure whether I would repeat. 2 and 1 stars - I do NOT give. Zaar EVENTS IN WHICH I PARTICIPATED: Aus/NZ Swaps #15,#16 April, May 2008 Aus/NZ Swaps #20#21#22 Sept Oct Nov 2008</p>
