I agree with the other reviewers that said this recipe turns out very spicy. However, it was still very good and an interesting way to eat something that we normally wouldn't try. Next time I will back off on the pepper just a touch.
I was hoping this would be the recipe that would increase my liking of turnips, but it was still lacking a little something. It's possible that they would have been better if I'd remembered to stir them to coat better during cooking, but I'm not sure I'll try this again (unless we get a lot more turnips in our CSA box).
this will be my way to cook turnips from now on! I had some turnips sitting in my fridge for ages (i had forgotten to cook them the last time I made corned beef) and, on a whim before cleaning out my fridge, looked online for a recipe. i found this one, made it, loved it, and will go out and buy more turnips and make it again! No more boiled turnips for me. I didn't find it too spicy (made it just as is), but I do like things with a little kick.
I didn't have as many turnips as called for, so I tried to make a little less rub. Still it was too much, the sugar burned and gave the outside of the turnips a weird texture. It was pretty spicy too even though most of the pepper seemed to stick to the burnt sugar. Maybe if the rub was very light with lots more turnips, it would be ok.
