Turnips With Orange

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

Kind of a homey recipe that dresses up the ol' turnip a bit, a recipe that comes from the 500 ALL-TIME GREAT RECIPES cookbook, a gift from my partner in the current Cookbook Swap!

There is nothing lowly about these turnips! I got some lovely red ones (looked like giant radishes) and regular ones at the farmer's market. These are just fantastic. WONDERFUL flavor. I am so happy I tagged this!
