• Turnip can be boiled or steamed. To boil or steam, cook for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Mini turnips can be boiled whole or chopped and steamed or roasted. To boil, bring a pan of water to the boil and cook whole mini turnips for 20-30 minutes or until tender.
  • You can boil them until tender, mash them, and add butter, cream, and salt for a low carb alternative to mashed potatoes. My absolute favorite turnip recipe is for turnip fries. YUM!! Turnip fries turnips olive oil salt Chop the turnips into french fry strips. Coat lightly with oil. Spread them out on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes (I bake it longer because I like them a little burned and crispy).
  • I just peel them, cut them up like potaoes, add a little bacon grease (yeah, yeah..I know, BAD! but SO good) and boil them until they are tender.
  • Pare them, cut them into smaller pieces, put them in boiling water with some sugar (1 tsp - 1 tbsp) and some seasoning meat (bacon, fatback, or ideally hog jowl) let the water return to a boil, turn down to simmer. Simmer till tender, mash in pot, let water boil out (carefully -- the turnips will burn).
  • I boil them until they are soft and then mash them. Add butter salt and some milk and it's a nice alternative to mashed potatoes.
  • Wash themseveral times if needed to remove all sand/dirt. Place in pot with water. Make sure you do not cover turnips with water. Add some cooking meat or ham pieces. Salt & pepper to taste also add some chopped onion too. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer till soft, but still bright green. Do you have the roots too? If so, peel them, chop and add to greens mixture.
  • If you get the baby turnips, you can cut them into small cubes and deep fry them, which is nice for a change (albeit slightly unhealthy, of course).
