    Bergy's Note:

    This, to me, is a very special fragrant dish that I enjoy making and serving it to special guests who like something a bit different. It is worth the bit of extra effort.

      Wow. This is gor-geous! Just try it and this recipe takes a one-way to your fist page of your recipe book. I've used suede instead of turnips and it mixed so well with oranges. For a vegan meal serve with lentils (coriander seeds, black pepper, ghee). For meat eaters it goes particularily well with a leg of duck simply put in the oven over fresh rosemary for a good hour.
