Honey-Kissed Baby Turnips & Greens

Purple turnips with greens

Enjoy the greens along with the turnip roots for a tasty and nutritious dish.

4 small to medium turnips with greens
1 teaspoon butter
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon honey
Salt & freshly ground pepper

Wash turnip bulbs and trim tops and tails. Do not peel. Cut into half-inch slices. Wash green tops and chop.

In a heavy-bottomed skillet, melt butter and add olive oil. When butter starts bubbling, add turnips and stir to coat. Let cook over medium heat, stirring and turning periodically, until turnips begin to soften and lightly brown, about 7 minutes.

Sprinkle moderately with sea salt, then add honey, stirring constantly to distribute. Toss in the greens along with their clinging water. Continue to stir and cook until greens have wilted, about 3 minutes. Season to taste with additional salt and several grindings of black pepper. Serves two.
