Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Combine 2 cups of water,  turnips, carrots, salt,  sugar if using and honey (the water will not cover the vegetables) 
  2. Bring the vegetables to a boil over high heat, then reduce to low and simmer cooking the vegetables covered for 15 to 20 minutes.  The more cooked (tender) the vegetables are the smoother the mash will be.
  3. Drain the vegetables and reserve the cooking water. Mash the vegetables with a potato masher, food processor  or potato ricer until they are at a texture that you like
  4. In a saucepan heat the butter. Add the onion and saute until they become translucent. Add the onions to the turnip and carrot mixture and blend well.  Gradually add cream and enough cooking water or rum to adjust the consistency and flavor.
