Turnips, though pungent, definitely have their sweet side, which comes out in this gently spiced sauté.
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon black or yellow mustard seeds
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 medium white turnips, peeled and diced
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 apples, peeled and diced
In a large skillet, heat the butter, oil, mustard seeds, cinnamon, and pepper over medium-low heat. Add the turnips, sprinkle with the salt, and toss to coat. Increase the heat to medium and cook, stirring, until the turnips take on some color.
Add the apples and cook for 2 minutes. Cover and steam for 5 minutes. Uncover and cook until the turnips are tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
