I felt this had too many competing strong tastes at once. Next time I would leave out the nutmeg or the horseradish, or maybe both, I just didn't care for those two tastes together.

I make half of this recipe for hubby and me. I didn't have any chives but other than that, followed exactly. It's a different taste for turnips... one that actually grows on you. I like the horseradish in it. Made for Zaar Alphabet Tag Game 2011.
