Glazed Hakurei Turnips

Prep time: 20 min   |    Cook time: 30 min   |   Ready In: 50 min


  • 1 bunch hakurei turnip, trimmed and greens reserved

  • 1-2 tablespoons unsalted butter

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • salt, to taste

Place whole turnips in a large skillet. Add enough water to cover turnips halfway. Add butter, sugar and a large pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid is syrupy and the turnips are tender, about 15 minutes. (If turnips are tender before the liquid has reduced, use a slotted spoon to transfer them to a plate and reduce the liquid until syrupy)

Add chopped turnip greens to skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring, until greens are just wilted. Serve hot.
