To me turnips taste like a cross between a watery flavorless potato and a radish mixed together, kind of blah.
But now that turnips are at there peak for picking I thought it would be wrong not to come up with a way to enjoy some. This recipe is very easy to make and the simple addition of Dijon mustard and cracked black pepper gives it enough kick to suit my taste buds. I think you will enjoy them this way as well.
Turnips Baked in Dijon Mustard
4 or 5 small to medium turnips peeled and sliced (about ½ inch thick)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and slice turnips in half. Mix mustard and butter, spread on turnips. Place turnips in shallow baking dish and sprinkle with black pepper. Bake until tender.
