  18. greenroselv says:

    Thanks for the recipe. I made some and it turned out really good. Thanks!

  19. LeakFreak says:

    I know this sounds weird but, I’ve heard of folks putting the greens in a dedicates bag and throwing them in the washing machine with just water, of course. =~D

    I love sipping pot liquor with a piece of cornbread when it’s cold outside. I’ve never used just broth before. I will try this soon. I got two big bunches last autumn and processed them all, freezing a bag. Well, really a turkey roasting bag, a bag none the less. =~D

    Thanks for the recipe!

    Cool im gonna try this. But. . . . Where do i get a cooked turkey leg?? Could i substitute it for ham or bacon?????

    You deserve own cooking show on Food Network. Cut lil baby with gorgeous hair. Love your jeans and hairstyle. You make greens like my grandmother except I find the way u remove the leaf from the stem easier and you use smoked turkey legs while mg family and I use ham hocks or neckbones.
