"A great side dish with grilled duck. An astonishing way to add some zip to a vegetable I'm used to putting in a soup pot."

  1. Place the turnips into a skillet with the water and chicken bouillon cube over medium heat, and simmer until the water has evaporated and the turnips are tender, about 15 minutes. Stir in the butter, let melt, and sprinkle on the sugar. Gently cook and stir the turnips until the butter and sugar cook into a brown, sticky coating on the turnips, about 10 minutes. Serve hot.

I give this recipe 5 stars because it provided me a way to eat some of the turnips in my garden without gagging! Very good. Very easy.

This is such an easy recipe, I have given it out while checking out at the grocery. You wouldn't believe the positive response I've received to this recipe. My adult daughter who usually turns...

I hate turnips, but got some from my CSA. Instead of giving them away - of letting them rot with the best of intentions of getting around to cooking them - I actually found this recipe and tried...
