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!"
