“I'm trying to come up with ways to cook turnips that don't involve roasting, stewing or mashing them, so I came up with this recently. It started as a potato pancake recipe from the Joy of Cooking, then changed when I tried it out. They came out rather sweet considering there's no sugar added... I'll definitely be eating these again. Good hot or cold.”
