Recipe by tisnewfiegirl

Purple turnips are much milder than yellow ones and are much easier to cut. My Mom used to make this with pearl onions, but I don't care for them and make it without them and it is delicious.

I love summertime for all the fresh produce found at A Farmers' market. I brought home some purple turnips and looked up this recipe. I also used fresh parsley from the local farmers which is a real added bonus from the store bought old and tough if not wilted variety. This was a good and flavorful recipe which was simple to put together. I served with leftover pork roast purchased from a local producer and mixed up Sangria for a great dinner at home!
