I know what you’re thinking: heavenly turnips? Remember from my earlier post that turnips can be sweet if young and freshly picked:
Now take freshly picked turnips, slice thinly, and blanch. Meanwhile, thinly slice a sweet onion too. (Use about one fourth the onion that you do the turnip.) Saute it in a heavy saucepan until it just barely starts to caramelize. Add cream, natural sour cream, and up to three kinds of cheeses (I used a local cheddar, parmesan, and a mild blue cheese) and still until well melted. In a small casserole, layer the turnips with sliced turkey ham and the cream mixture until all of the ingredients are used. Bake uncovered to let liquid reduce. Ahhhhhhhhhh: heavenly turnips!
