Great new way to serve greens! I couldn't find mustard greens, and could choose between collard greens or turnip greens. I chose turnip greens because they just looked better! Also, I knew they would cook faster than the collard greens. Mine wilted in about 15 minutes, and I drained them in a colander, mashing all the juices out. It was easy to heat them back up in the butter and garlic. It took a lot less time to make these than I thought it would, and they were delicious! Thanks for sharing a recipe I'll repeat again!
