New Years Day Greens

New Years Day Greens

Rendered grease from 4 slices of bacon
1 bag chopped turnip greens
1 bag chopped mustard greens
1 bag chopped collard greens
2 smoked ham hocks
10 cups chicken stock
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 turnip - cut into 3/4” chunks

Heat bacon grease in the bottom of a large stock pot - when hot, add one bag of the greens and cook until wilted.  Add the next bags of greens and wilt.  Add the final bag of greens - by this point, you may need to go ahead and add the cover to help wilt the greens.  Once wilted, add your broth and 2 ham hocks.  Bring the greens to a boil and then turn down the heat to med-low and simmer for 4 hours minimum.  Serve piping hot with cornbread and hot pepper sauce.
