First, you need to know what is a turnip. It is dark yellow and dark purple waxy vegetable. A rutabaga is a white and bright purple thing. Second this is a classic. I like to taste my food for what it is. I don't want to taste 20 other things.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 turnip
  • 1 -2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 -2 tablespoon gravy, made from home stock of the meat you are eating with these turnip


  1. Peel and cut turnip like you would for mashed potatoes.
  2. Put in pot of water until covered and your sugar. Turnips can be very bitter so the sugar takes the bitter out. Cook until fork tender. Drain. Mash like you would potatoes. Use gravy instead of milk or whatever you mash your taters with. Enjoy!
