From CSA members Dave and Linda -
This has become our granddaughter’s favorite dinner!
1 ¾ lbs. ham hocks, rinsed
2 quarts water
Fresh turnip greens and the turnips that go with them. (The amount you get in your CSA bag is perfect.)
1 TBS. Sugar or Splenda
Bring ham hocks and 2 quarts water to boil in an 8-quart Dutch oven. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 2 hours. Take the ham hocks out and separate the meat from the bone. Put the meat back in the Dutch oven.
Remove and discard big stems and discolored leaves from greens. Chop greens. Cut any large turnips in half.
Add greens, roots, and sugar or Splenda to Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 60 minutes.
with cornbread or biscuits to mop up the juice.
