Serves 4


  • 2 Tbs butter
  • 16 small turnips, quartered, greens and tap roots removed
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • 3/4 c apple cider
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the turnips and cook, shaking the pan occasionally, until lightly browned in spots, about 5 minutes.  Sprinkle the thyme over the turnips and pour the apple cider into the pan.  Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low.  Cover the pan and simmer until the turnips are tender and easily pierced with a knife, about 5 minutes.

Remove the lid, increase heat to high, and boil, stirring the turnips often, until the cider nearly evaporates and the turnips are golden brown and glazed, about 5 more minutes.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.
