to me they are alot like potato(can flavor them how you wish) rather than a rutabaga- which has it's own flavor- how would you cook these turnips- (for tomorrow nite to go with baked ham)- thanks a bunch-judy-

Sweet and flavorful turnips form the basis for a Thanksgiving side dish full of brown sugar and applesauce. You can bake it beforehand and just reheat before the big meal to make the minutes before dinner easier.

Is there room in the oven to roast them? A little olive oil and spices of your choice. I love turnips!

Hi, Sottish delight. cheers. RumbledethumpsVegYou can cook the Rumbledethumps earlier in the day and reheat in the oven - give them an extra 20 minutes or so from cold. Ingredients 600g/1lb 5oz large potatoes, peeled and chopped into large chunks 400g/14oz swede (known as turnip in Scotland), peeled and chopped into large chunks 75g/2┬żoz unsalted butter 250g/9oz savoy cabbage or kale, finely sliced salt and freshly ground black pepper 25g/1oz cheddar cheese, grated Preparation method 1.Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. 2.Cook the potatoes and swede in a saucepan of salted boiling water until tender. Drain well and return to the pan. 3.Heat 50g/2oz butter in a pan and gently cook the cabbage for a few minutes, until the cabbage is tender but retains its colour. 4.Add the cabbage to the pan with the potatoes and swede. Add the remaining 25g/1oz butter and mash together using a potato masher. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper. 5.Place the mashed vegetables into an ovenproof lidded dish and top with the cheese. Cover with a lid and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes, then remove the lid and continue to cook for a further 15 minutes, or until piping hot and golden-brown on top.

Hi, Nanny. I love turnip and carrots mashed together, something my mother always did. Just boil the chunked-up turnip and carrots (I usually mix about 2/3 turnip and 1/3 carrot), then mash them together with salt and pepper to taste, some butter and a little grated nutmeg. The sweetness of the carrots takes away the bitterness of the turnips. Easy and yummy. In fact, I'm doing that tonight to have with some baked cod.

I have a recipe sitting here in front of the computer for turnip & cabbage slaw I was going to try. 1 clove garlic(fine chop, mash with pinch kosher salt to paste), whisk with 1 tsp salt, 1/2 c plain Greek yogurt, and 1/4 c evoo. Season with black pepper. Combine 1/2 head (6 c)shredded cabbage, 4 med turnips(3/4#), peeled and julienned or coarse grated for 2 cups, 1/4 c chopped dill and add dressing. Stand 10 mins, taste and adjust seasoning. servers 6-8

Here's a cornmeal muffin recipe that's pretty simple, but lends itself well to improvisation. Try adding corn, jalapeno peppers or Cheddar cheese.
