Creamed Turnips Recipe

Ingredients
  • 1 large turnip, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
Directions
  1. Place the turnip in a saucepan with enough water to cover the cubes; place the saucepan over medium heat; bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 5 minutes; drain water and return turnip to saucepan.
  2. Return the saucepan to medium heat. Pour enough fresh water over the turnips to cover; add the sugar. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until turnip pieces are fork tender; drain.
  3. Melt the butter in a separate saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir the flour into the butter to make a roux. Whisk in the milk until the mixture thickens. Add the turnips and stir gently to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
