Glazed Turnips (or Radishes)

Use these as a side dish or accompaniment to a variety of meals…tacos anyone?!


  • 1 pound salad turnips or radishes, greens reserved
  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • salt and pepper


Cut turnips (or radishes) in quarters or bite size pieces. Place them in a skillet and add water to cover turnips halfway. Add butter, sugar, and a large pinch of both salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until liquid is syrupy and turnips are tender, about 10-15 minutes.

Add chopped turnip greens and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until just wilted.
