Cider-Glazed Turnips & Apples with Sage & Bacon

By November 11, 2011Uncategorized

1 lb purple-top turnips, peeled and cut into wedges
4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 cup apple cider
2 tsp. granulated sugar
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 large firm, sweet apple, peeled, cored, and sliced
2 tsp. chopped fresh sage

Put bacon in a large skillet and set over medium heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 8 min. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Pour off bacon fat from the pan and set pan back on the burner. Add the butter and, when it’s melted, add turnips, apple cider, sugar, and 1 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover pan with the lid slightly askew, reduce heat to med-high, and cook at a steady boil, shaking the pan occasionally, until turnips are just tender but not soft, 8-10 min. Uncover pan, add sliced apples and sage, and continue to boil, stirring occasionally, until liquid has reduced to a sticky glaze, 2-3 min. Turnips should be soft and apples crisp-tender. Toss in cooked bacon and season to taste with pepper and salt if necessary. Adapted from
