Turnips are members of the brassica family, which also includes broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. The white turnips that are commonly sold in grocery stores often have purple-hued tops. Their crunchy texture and slightly bitter, spicy flavor mellows with cooking. We cut our turnips into wedges and simmer them in apple cider. When they’re tender, we turn up the heat to allow the liquid to reduce to a glossy glaze. This is a perfect side to a pork roast or chops.

Servings

Tip

Don’t forget to add 1 cup water with the apple cider. The liquid is necessary to cook the turnips evenly and thoroughly. But don’t use additional cider in place of the water or the liquid will be too sugary and apt to scorch when reduced.

These were by far the best tasting turnips I've ever had. As a bonus, they were easy to prepare!
