Remove long stems and ribs of bunch of turnip greens. Plunge greens in large pot of boiling salted water, cook for 10 min. then remove to a bowl. Reserve half a cup of the cooking water. Heat 1/4 cup butter until the milk solids are brown, the aroma should be toasty & nutty. Add 1 onion, garlic & pepper flakes in a wide skillet over medium heat until onion is soft. Add the greens, the reserved water and 1 tsp. salt. Cook for 30 min and taste again for salt. They can use a lot. Serve with hot sauce (the vinegar and hot sauce sets off the greens perfectly).
