This was a staple on every holiday table I had growing up. It’s super easy to make – for this recipe, I used collard greens, mustard greens, and turnip greens. I hope you enjoy!
3 bunches of collard, turnip, and mustard greens, rinsed, trimmed, and chopped (I chop some of the stems too, why not? you paid for it!!!)
1 pound of smoked turkey wings or tails
8 cups of water
water, if needed
1 tablespoon of garlic powder
1 tablespoon of onion powder
1 tablespoon of Kosher salt
1 tablespoon of black pepper
2 tablespoons of your favorite Cajun seasoning
salt & pepper to taste
1/2 cup of sugar
1 tablespoons of red pepper flakes
This is more of a process…so read along.
1. Dump the greens, smoked turkey wings or tails and water into the pot and bring to a boil. Allow to cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes. The greens should be fragrant and they should have cooked down some.
