Turnips should be refrigerated in a bag or container.
Turnips are delicious sauteed with oil and salt by themselves or in a stir fry. They are also good raw on a salad. Honey Glazed Turnips taste like candy!
The Farmer's Wife also uses turnips in place of potatoes in a roast. Or try mashing turnips with your potatoes for an new flavorful version.
Turnips contain good levels of Vitamin C, calcium, and potassium.
Turnips have been grown since ancient times.
Honey Glazed Turnips
1 bunch turnips, washed and quartered
4 T honey
2 T butter
1 C water
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 T fresh lemon juice (optional)
Using a large skillet with a lid, combine turnips, honey, butter, and water. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste. Bring liquid to a boil over medium-high, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook until turnips are just tender, 10 minutes. Uncover, bring liquid back to boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is almost reduced, about 10 more minutes until turnips are golden and glazed. Season with fresh lemon juice if desired. DELISH!
