Directions

  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.

We grew turnips in our garden for the first time this year, and they grew like crazy. This recipe is great and I would totally use it again! I left out the sugar, since it was not Thanksgiving and we didn't need any extra sugar. My family is not really fond of turnips, but we ate this all gone. It tastes like brocoli with white cheese melted over them... Not bad for turnips!

Turnips are not my favorite vegetable but this is a really good dish. I made it just as the recipe stated but tripled for my big family. The kids even ate it without complaint.

I tried turnips for the first time ever tonight. These were delicious! The only changes I made was I simmered 3 turnips and reserved 1 cup of the water that I boiled the turnips in, as I wanted to return the taste and nutrients back into the recipe, so I used the water instead of milk. I have 3 turnips left and I will be making this recipe again very soon! Thank you.
