We love turnip at Thanksgiving and making it this way added a wonderful flavor. We will have it again at Christmas and lots of times during the year!

I added the butter when I served the turnip, just a dab in the middle. I used a white turnip and it tasted great with the maple syrup and garlic. Just the right ingredinta to kick the turnip up a notch. Just a suggestion when you drain the turnip put your pot back on the stove for just a few seconds to dry the turnips a bit
