Removing bitterness from cooked greens

Sasha | Mar 30, 200602:13 PM     38

I just cooked a bag of TJs southern greens last night for tonight's dinner - a mix of mustard and turnip greens, collards, and spinach. Doing a s/p taste test, I noticed the mixture was quite bitter. I'd never had mustard or turnip greens before - those may be the culprits, or it just might not be the highest quality.

In any case, I have serious doubts my 4 yr old would eat it unless I can figure out something to cut the bitterness a tad. The greens have already been cooked in some broth, garlic, and browned sausage bites for about 30 minutes. It may be too late - if it is, please tell me so. Thanks!
