Smoky Turnip Greens are loaded with smoky savory flavor.
They’re seasoned with Liquid Smoke and smoked ham hocks (or use smoked turkey wings).
EDITOR’S NOTE (April 11, 2022): I have updated the helpful tips to make them easier to understand. Recipe is the same.
On December 8, 2018, I published this recipe for the first time on this blog. I have not been paid to endorse the Liquid Smoke nor the packaged turnip greens pictured below.
However, I did cook the turnip greens in a pretty blue dutch oven provided by Lodge Manufacturing. For that reason, I must share the following info…

I have not been paid money to endorse the cookware.
All comments are my own.
Super Fit Greens (pictured) or fresh bunches of turnip greens are excellent for this recipe. Not a paid endorsement. Just a friendly mention.
WASH BEFORE USING
Although it’s clearly written on the package that the greens have been washed, I always wash them before using.
HOW TO GET RID OF THE FAMOUS BITTER TASTE
Although turnip greens have a bitter taste, many people love it.
For those of us who don’t, simply add two teaspoons of sugar (or a sugar substitute) to the pot before cooking.
THE SMOKED HAM HOCKS
Smoked ham hocks are used to season greens, beans, and peas.
Learn more about them in my recipe for Smoky Collard Greens.
THE LIQUID SMOKE
A little Liquid Smoke adds more delicious smoky flavor. I like the Wright’s brand because it’s made with water and natural hickory smoke concentrate. No preservatives
