Beet Greens Recipe

Directions:
1 pound beet greens
1 strip of thick cut bacon, chopped
¼ cup chopped onion
1 large garlic clove, minced
¾ cup of water
1 Tbsp granulated sugar
¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/6 cup of cider vinegar

Ingredients:
Wash the greens in a sink filled with cold water. Drain greens and wash a second time. Drain greens and cut away any heavy stems. Cut leaves into bite-sized pieces. Set aside. In a large skillet or 3-qt saucepan, cook bacon until lightly browned on medium heat (or heat 1 Tbsp of bacon fat). Add onions, and beet stems (chopped) cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions soften and start to brown. Stir in garlic. Add water to the hot pan, stirring to loosen any particles from bottom of pan. Stir in sugar and red pepper. Bring mixture to a boil. Add the beet greens, gently toss in the onion mixture so the greens are well coated. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5-15 minutes until the greens are tender. Stir in vinegar.
