Turnips are a tough sell, but I find myself liking the bitterness more as I get older! These are sweet, deep, and mark the first time I have ever heard the phrase 'Can I finish the turnips?' This is a great side for turkey or pork roast.

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place the turnip in a pot with enough cold, salted water to cover. Bring the water to a boil and cook until the turnips are soft, about 7 minutes; drain. Transfer the turnips to a shallow baking dish. Dot the top of the turnips with pieces of butter. Pour enough of the beer into the dish to cover the turnips. Season with savory and salt.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the beer is mostly cooked off and the turnip is tender, about 1 hour.

I really liked this simple recipe. I used a large yellow turnip which is harder than a normal white turnip. After an hour in the oven, it was still hard, so I boiled the whole mixture on the stove top. It was well worth the extra effort as it came out perfect. In fact, this dish could be addictive!

I used red turnips that I had planted in a foodplot. After my daughter picked some I had to try something. These were wonderful. I used a dark lager. You don't taste the beer but the turnips taste like a potato. The whole family enjoyed them.
