- 5 tablespoons margarine
- 1 turnip bulb, chopped
- 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
- 1 (8 to 12-ounce) ham hock, chopped
- 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Pinch freshly ground black pepper
- 1 tablespoon horseradish
- Pinch wasabi powder
- 1 tablespoon ham base
- 2 cups water
- Pinch salt
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 pounds turnip greens, washed, stemmed and chopped
In a large, heavy pot over medium heat, add the margarine, onion and ham hock. Saute until onions seem translucent, about 5 to 6 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the turnip greens, and mix together. Add the turnip greens and cook on medium heat, partially covered until tender, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. When the greens and turnips are tender it's time to eat.
