Ingredients

  • 2-3/4 pounds turnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 bunch fresh turnip greens (about 12 ounces), chopped
  • 8 ounces cubed fully cooked country ham or 2 smoked ham hocks (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt
  • 2 cartons (32 ounces each) chicken broth

Directions

In a greased 6- or 7-qt. slow cooker, combine all ingredients. Cook, covered, on low until vegetables are tender, 5-6 hours, stirring once. If using ham hocks, remove meat from bones when cool enough to handle; cut ham into small pieces and return to slow cooker. Serve with a slotted spoon. Yield: 14 servings (3/4 cup each).

Test Kitchen tips
  • Sugar is added to many recipes for turnip greens to offset their somewhat bitter flavor.
