Add the smoked turkey wing into a large pot, then pour in 8 cups of water.
Place the pot over high heat, and bring to a boil. Let cook for 45-50 minutes.
While the smoked turkey is cooking, clean your greens. ( Be sure to check out my cooking tutorial to that you can see how I clean my turnip greens).
Once the greens are cleaned, remove the leaves from the stems, and start adding the turnip leaves in the pot.
Once all the greens are in the pot, start adding in the onions and bell peppers.
Next add in the garlic, red pepper flakes, seasoning salt, black pepper, brown sugar, and vinegar.
Give everything a nice stir, then reduce the heat to medium.

Now toss in the turnips, and fold in with the other ingredients. Let cook for another 30 - 45 minutes.
