From turnip greens to kale, we might consider winter greens to be one of our most-beloved Southern ingredients, and these recipes showcase them best.
Even though some winter greens are a bit delicate, they do need to be thoroughly washed to remove dirt and grit. Fill a clean sink with cold water, add greens with stems and large ribs removed, and let soak for a few minutes. Then swish greens around until dirt is released. Rinse, and repeat procedure if necessary. Dry the greens well before you start cooking with them.
