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]
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
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.
