TURNIP AND CARROT MASH

Lee Jacintho Recipe

By Lee Jacintho SwampCatNana

This is a dish I make only at Thanksgiving. I love it so much that I began making a ton of it and freezing the rest in serving sizes! If you don't like turnip/rutabaga, try this way.
Please read the directions carefully and follow them to a "T". The separate processing of the 2 ingredients is the secret to its uniqueness.
This is a review of my recipe on food.com:
***** "I started cooking this veggie combination years ago because my daughter didn't like turnip; I now cook it because my hubby doesn't like turnip! I've always cooked the 2 veggies in the same pot but I won't do that anymore. Boiling them separately ensured that each veg was cooked properly and the water was drained thoroughly. The texture & consistency of the veggies were much better using this method. Thanx Lee!"

    I have to edit it. It seems to have dropped 2 steps.

    I am the oddball that loves turnips! There aren't enough turnip recipes. I am glad to see this, and I will make it. My husband told me that his Mom used to make mashed turnips like you do mashed potatoes, and they are delicious!
