Honey Glazed Turnips

by Dishing Up the Dirt

Prep Time: 15 minutes  |  Cook Time: 15 minutes  |  Serves: 4


  • 2 pounds turnips, greens removed (save for another use)
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons good quality butter
  • 1 Tablespoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  1. Cut the turnips into 1/2 inch pieces. Place the turnips in a heavy bottom skillet and add enough water (about 1 1/4 cups) to reach halfway up turnips. Add the butter, honey and salt. Cover the pan and bring to a boil over medium- high heat, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Boil turnips, uncovered, until tender and the liquid has evaporated, about 8 minutes.
  2. Continue to cook the turnips over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until golden brown, about 5 minutes longer. Serve warm or at room temperature
