Serves: 2-4

Time 35 minutes


4 cups turnip root, diced *

4-6 cups turnip greens and stems, cut into ½ inch strips **

¾ cup onion, diced

¼ cup oil

¼ cup honey

4 Tbl cider vinegar

1 tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

  1. Cut turnip greens from bulbs, keeping the stems. Cut the greens from the stems. Wash the stems and roots under running cold water.

  2. Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add onions and sauté for 2 minutes. Add diced roots and stems. Stir the vegetables, then pat them into a single layer and cover the skillet with a large lid. Turn the heat down to medium low and leave the roots undisturbed and covered for 5 minutes. Remove the lid, stir and repeat the process above leaving the turnips covered for another 5 minutes.

  3. Remove lid, add honey, vinegar, salt and black pepper. Increase heat to high – stirring only once or twice. Cook roots for another 5 minutes. Add the greens, stirring to wilt the greens then leave turnips undisturbed until all of the moisture has evaporated and been absorbed into the vegetables.

  4. Serve hot or at room temperature as a side dish.
