About this recipe:
Straight from Orkney, here's a traditional clapshot recipe for Burns supper. Serve hot with oatcakes or haggis.
500g floury potatoes, peeled and cubed
500g yellow turnip, peeled and cubed
1 small onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
salt and pepper to taste

30 min › Ready in:
Place the potatoes and turnip into a large pot and cover with water. Put over high heat, bring to the boil and cook until soft.
Meanwhile, heat 1/2 the butter in a small frying pan over medium high heat and fry the onion until soft and translucent.
Drain the potato and turnip when done, then add the remaining butter and the sautéed onions. Mash till smooth and then stir in the chopped chives, salt and pepper.
Just had this with some Stornaway haggis from our butcher. Very tasty! The only thing we did different was to roughly mash it to give it more texture - just our preference. Would definitely make it again. Would go with all sorts of things
