  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1 bouillon cube- dissolve in water
  • 1 Tb butter
  • 1 Tb sugar

Directions- place the turnips in a iron pan, pour dissolved bouillon and water over the top. Simmer until the water evaporates, and the turnips are tender approx 10 min. Stir butter and sugar in and cook until brown and sticky. Serve warm.
