NOTES:
The greens can be refriderated overnight. Reheat gently and stir in
the buttermilk shortly before serving.
Samuelsson created this recipe for Kale. I used Turnip greens with good
results. Samuelssons recipe also called for 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh
ginger. I doubled the amount as it was not strong enough for me.
After all is said and done the dish is marvelous and was a big hit with my
family and our guests.
