A post on turnip

We let Samantha pick fruits and vegetables that she likes the look of, you know, to encourage her to eat a wide range of healthy things.

Which is how we came to be cooking a load of turnip.

I was clearly feeling the Masterchef influence as I opted for the alliteratively alluring “turnip two ways”.

Turnip one

Peel turnip. Chop up turnip.

Boil turnip for 15 minutes. Add an apple. Boil for 10 more minutes.

Mash with a little butter, milk and a pinch of mace. Salt and pepper to taste.

Turnip two

Peel, chop and boil as above. Instead of adding the apple, remove from water and pat dry.

Melt a knob of butter in the microwave. Squeeze in some maple syrup or honey. Salt and black pepper. Toss the turnip in this mixture and roast for 20 minutes.

Honestly, they were both… okay I suppose.
