Mustard Greens

I've never made Mustard Greens before but they were on sale this week so I thought I would try them. Most of the recipes I found were for Collard Greens or just Greens. This recipe is originally for Collard Greens but it worked just fine.

Boat House Mustard Greens
adapted from

2 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 Tbsp butter
2 cups water
1 bunch mustard greens, stems removed and washed
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tsp cayenne
2 tsp cajun seasoning
salt & pepper

In a large pot, cook bacon pieces until crisp. Add onion and butter and cook until onion browns. Add prepared greens to pot. Add water. Add sugar, syrup, cayenne, and cajun seasoning. Bring to a boil, and boil for one hour. Add salt and pepper to taste.
