3 cups water

1/4 pound smoked turkey breast, skinless

1 Tbsp hot pepper, freshly chopped

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1/4 tsp cloves, ground

2 cloves garlic, crushed

1/2 tsp thyme

1 tsp ginger, ground

1/4 cup onion, chopped

Place all ingredients except greens into large saucepan and bring to a boil.

Prepare greens by washing thoroughly and removing stems.

Use a small amount of skinless smoked turkey breast instead of fatback to lower the fat content but keep the taste.
