Tana's Kitchen Secrets
by Tana Ramsay
Turnips are a great value vegetable. However, they can be bitter, which is often offputting to children. In this recipe, the sweetness of the honey corrects any such tendency. You'll find this makes a popular side dish for everyone at the table.
Serves 4 as a side dish
Preparation time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 40 minutes
Can be made in advance
Suitable for freezing


    • 1 large turnip (about 1 lb 10 oz) evenly diced
    • sea salt and black pepper
    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 6 thyme sprigs
    • 2 tbsp golden honey
    • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Place the turnip in a pan of cold salted water, bring to a boil over high heat, and cook for 8-10 minutes. Drain well, transfer to a large nonstick roasting pan, and pop into the oven for 5 minutes to dry out. Remove, add the oil and thyme, season with salt and pepper and toss to coat.

3. Drizzle over the honey and balsamic vinegar and roast for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden and slightly crisp at the edges (see secret, below).

Cooking with Honey:
Nonstick roasting pans and baking sheets are your friends when using honey in the oven Though it will add a wonderful sweetness and give a beautiful burnished color, it can very easily burn, turning black, acrid in flavor, and impossible to chip off traditional baking ware. Keep a close eye on the dish in the oven, basting and stirring frequently and watching out for any scorching.
