Wow, we loved the turnip prepared this way my friend. It was so good. You should know that I am not normally a fan of turnip but this recipe is turning me around. It was wonderful, soft, tender, flavorful and absolutely delicious. Thank you for sharing a new family favorite and kudos on making it into my Best of Cookbook for 2020.

I subbed splenda for the sugar and otherwise made the same. They are delicious and so tender and fluffy!
