ingredients

4 pounds white turnips peeled and cut into 1/2" pieces
12 tablespoons butter, divided
1 clove garlic, peeled
salt, to taste
freshly-ground black pepper, to taste

directions

Bring a lot of salted water to a boil and parboil the turnips for 7 minutes; add the garlic and boil 1 minute longer; drain.

Melt half the butter and cook the garlic and turnips, covered, over low heat for 5 minutes.

Transfer turnips and garlic to a food processor and puree until smooth, adding remaining butter with the machine turned on.

Season well with salt and pepper and, if made in advance, reheat in a double boiler.

REVIEW: recipe rating
I took a bite of a turnip sliver and was somewhat disheartened, but after following this recipe I found that the flavor is quite unique and tasty! I would recomend stopping after cooking them in the pan and not pureeing them. Or if you like, you can puree them and add bacon bits. Mmmm... Thanks for the recipe!
