Having grown turnips this year in the veggie patch, this recipe was ideal, I swapped honey for the sugar and used vegetable stock mixed it with bacon, it was a nice combination of flavours. - 19 Jul 2014


This was surprisingly delicious. The turnips arrived in my veg box this week and had been languishing in the fridge - I had no idea what to do with them. They tasted like candy! (I didn't use the chicken stock cube.) - 07 Jun 2013
