I had the privilege last fall, in one amazing week, to eat at a number of nice restaurants in Charlottetown that had sourced Jen's sweet and crunchy summer turnips (it was coincidence, I wasn't on a Jen's-turnip-hunt, although that's a great idea!). The chefs had prepared them different ways but perhaps my favorite was a sidedish at Sim's, which I remember as being aMAZEing, but the details are fuzzy. In an attempt to recreate my fuzzy delicious memory, I threw some of my favorite things in a pot and it came out pretty darn good!
An important factor in recipes for me is that I can do it while getting everything else ready and deal with four needy small humans at the same time. I could easily read a book, kiss a boo-boo, jiggle a carseat, get multiple glasses of water and answer a terrible, home made knock-knock joke while letting this do its thing.
For a summer meal on a hot night, after a busy day, this was quick, easy and really tasty. The variations with this could go far and wide too. I'm sure braising carrots and onions with the turnip would be awesome too- and that's just the beginning. Maybe some Bragg's soy sauce instead of the syrup for a more savoury dish? So many possibilities!
