Boiled Turnips

Turnips can be difficult to cook sometimes, but boiled turnips are so easy that even a beginning cook can manage them. Not only is it easy, but learning how to cook a turnip by boiling makes for a delicious meal too!

Ingredients
  • Turnips
  • Water
  • Seasonings (optional)
  • Butter (optional)
  • Milk (optional)
Instructions
  1. Wash turnips and cut off the unusable parts of the ends.
     
  2. Boil until soft enough to get a fork in and out easily. Remove from water and mash. Treat like potatoes.
     
  3. Add butter, milk, seasonings, whatever you like.
     
  4. Serve hot.
Notes

Some varieties of turnips tend to be watery and this recipe will be bland if you get that kind of turnip. I have no idea how to tell without eating a cooked one.Use in any soup for which you would use potatoes or parsnips. Matzoh ball soup and chicken soup are classics. Slice thin and fry in oil for a stir fry. Radishes are awesome this way too. Use raw grated or cooked mashed turnip in place of similar prepped potatoes in pancakes or similar fried foods.
