DIRECTIONS

  • Peel the potatoes and turnip.
  • Cut both into roughly the same size pieces.
  • Put into a deep pan with the onion.
  • Add boiling water to cover and simmer gently until the ingredients are just soft.
  • Drain off the cooking liquid.
  • Mash everything thoroughly, adding chives and enough milk and butter to make a light consistency.
  • Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Serve with a nice sharp cheese as a meal, or as a side dish with a stew or meat.
  • (We used to fry the leftovers and serve with fried tomatoes and bacon for breakfast).
