Southern Mustard Greens

Southern Mustard Greens
  • mustard greens, well washed
  • ham, bacon, or fat back
  • water
  • sugar, optional
  1. Strip the leafy part from the stems. In a large pot fry down 1 lb. of fat back, thick bacon,or ham chunks til brown. Then add mustard greens. Stir and fry all this until greens start to wilt. Add 2 cups of water and cook until tender. Add more water if necessary. Some people cook mustard greens,collard greens and turnip greens all together in one pot. You can add a spoon of sugar in the water to sweeten the greens. Stir frequently on medium heat so they don't burn. These go well with black-eyed peas, ham, and cornbread.
