This recipe/tip came courtesy of member Florence. The flavors of the apple, onion and wine (or vinegar) help cut the bitterness of the greens.
We were talking about summer turnip tops earlier and whether they are edible.

Yes they are!

I came home, took the tops of the turnips, the tops of the beets I bought at the farmers’ market, and a handful of the arugula and did the following:

Trim off all stems and cut the tops into small pieces.

Dice ¼ of a red onion.

Dice 1 apple.

Heat and spray a pot with olive oil spray.

Add the onions and apples, cook for a few minutes. Add the greens and cook for a few minutes more stirring constantly. Add ½ cup sweet white wine (or you can use apple cider) . Cover and cook an additional 5 minutes.

I also added Chipotle Tabasco sauce to taste.

It’s very tasty.
