    Loved it! Shared it with my co-worker. She thought they were great. The recipe is now circulating here at work. One thing that I did differently, is that I bring the turnips to a boil once, drain, add new water and continue to cook, according to recipe. This helps take away bitterness. - 12/2/09

  • I just grew some turnips in my garden for the first time--made this tonight--very tasty. I left out the sugar--but added in some garlic. - 5/4/17
