Makes 4 to 6 servings

  • 2 lbs. young turnips, peeled, then halved, quartered or cut in finger-size sticks, depending on the size of the turnips
  • 4 TBSP butter
  • Sea or Kosher salt
  • Freshley ground black pepper
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup water
  • Chopped fresh basil

1. Place turnips in a large heavy pan and add butter, salt and pepper to taste, honey and water.

2. Cut a round of baking parchment to fit exactly over the turnips - or place a lid on slightly askew

3. Bring liquid to a boil over medium heat and then turn down to medium-low. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the water has reduced to a thick, shiny glaze in the bottom of the pan and the turnips are tender.

4. Place the turnips in a serving dish and spoon the glaze over them.

5. Garnish with a little fresh, chopped basil and serve.
