Turnips

Daniel 4:15 Nevertheless leave the stump of his roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let his portion be with the beasts in the grass of the earth:

Turnips, what can you say about turnips?  Other than there are totally delicious!

I make my turnips a with a fire and ice flare.

Those who have never eaten turnips, or have eaten them and didn’t like them, I encourage you to try these.

[Sorry there aren't any pictures.  I am terrible about remembering to take pics until it's too late.  I will try to get some on here]

Ingredients

6-8 small/medium turnips, peeled and cubed

1 cup sugar

3 tablespoons bacon grease (you can use butter, but it’s not as good)

1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes (do not use cayenne pepper)

salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Place peeled turnips in a saucepan and cover with water.

Add remaining ingredients; cover

Bring to boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to medium low and cook until turnips are just tender; about 20/25 minutes.

Serve with fresh cornbread or hoe cakes.

I like to eat my turnips after my meal because of the sweetness in them.

When eaten with cornbread soaked in the pot liquor……… YUM, YUM!

Okay, I am salivating!  I think I have turnips already cooked in the fridge.

See ya!
