For the first time, we got LARGE (softball sized) turnips from the farm. Ages ago, when we got turnips and I was stumped, my spouse found a recipe for turnips with butter and apple juice.

I couldn't find the recipe (truthfully, I didn't look). I did add salt and pepper.

Turnips with butter and apple cider
3 large turnips, peeled, quartered, and diced
2 Tbsp butter
1/4 to 1/3 cup apple cider

Saute turnips in butter, salt and pepper, until golden.

Add apple juice and cook until thickened and glazed.

Very simple, pretty good recipe. I'm not a huge turnip fan either. They are a little on the sweet side for me.

Served with leftover fejoida from the freezer with diced avo and sour cream and bread.

Turnips go really well with citrus flavors. The one time I cooked them, I mashed them with some OJ. This looks delicious.
