    Seasoned Cook's Note:

    Great flavor for a vegetable! Easily found in produce section of grocery. The root is purplish and has green leafy tops. You'll find these turnips in many southern cafes which have home cooked meals. Cornbread is the bread choice to go along with this vegetable dish.

      I love turnips and the roots. This was great. UPDATE: I made these again and they were just as good as the first time. I have some leftovers since I'm the only one that eats them.
