- 1½ lbs. turnips
- 2 Tbsp. butter
- 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp. granulated sugar
- 1 Tbsp. Italian flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
- Peel the turnips and cut into 1" pieces. In a large frying pan place the turnips with enough salted water to cover. Bring the water to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the turnips, covered, until they are tender and can be easily pierced with a fork (about 10 minutes). Drain the turnips. Clean out the frying pan.
- Melt the butter in the frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the turnips and toss with the cinnamon and sugar. Sauté until they turn golden brown (about 5–7 minutes). Stir in the parsley, and serve.
