I call these things turnips but whatever you call them, I love this vegetable but it is a hard vegetable to serve at an elegant dinner and make it special. I found this recipe a few years back and it has been on our Christmas and Thanksgiving table ever since.
Everyone wants the recipe once they try it!! Hope you all love it as much as we do!!

    I do this at Christmas when I have a lot going on. So easy to do and it is delicious!!!
    To finish the dish, melt the remaining butter and balsamic vinegar together over low heat Drizzle over the puree and serve.
    We had this at New Years dinner!!!
    NOTE::
    I didn't have sour cream on hand so I used coffee cream and it was great!!!
