  • Summary

    Spicy, sharp turnip greens, braised gently with a smoked ham hock, are a time-honored accompaniment on southern tables at any time of the year. Add in the turnips, plus lots of apple, and the dish tastes lighter and more delicate. It's also very pretty, with the ivory turnips, golden apple, and pink ham nestled among the dark greens.

    Ingredients

    • 2 pounds turnip greens or other braising greens (see cooks' note, below), tough stems discarded and greens torn into small pieces
    • 1 (3/4-to 1-pound) ham hock, rinsed
    • 3 1/2 cups water
    • 3 Gala apples
    • 1 1/4 pounds turnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
    • 2 teaspoons cider vinegar
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces
