  1. Place the turnip in a saucepan with enough water to cover the cubes; place the saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 5 minutes; drain water and return turnip to saucepan.
  2. Return the saucepan to medium heat. Pour enough fresh water over the turnips to cover; add the sugar. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until turnip pieces are fork tender; drain.
  3. Melt the butter in a separate saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir the flour into the butter to make a roux. Whisk in the milk until the mixture thickens. Add the turnips and stir gently to coat. Season with salt and pepper.

I've never had turnips before but I got some for free from a friends garden so I thought I'd try this recipe. This dish was pretty easy to make and had a nice subtle flavor. It would make a goo...

I had never tried a turnip until I tried out this recipe. I bought 5 small ones, as my grocery store does not carry large ones. I modified the recipe a bit, I made a larger amount of roux and ad...

Perfect recipe, just added pepper and everyone ate it up!

At first I followed the recipe to a tee. Too much "goo" and not enough turnip. Also, that "goo" was super plain, and on top of that, basically just tasted like thick milk. I tried to add cheese ...
