Traditional at Christmas in Scandinavia; mine is a rustic version.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1kg turnips, tops and bottoms cut off
salt
300g bacon, in one piece, or thickly sliced
200ml double cream
1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. If the turnips are big, halve or quarter them, but do not peel. Boil in salted water for 10–15 minutes, until just tender, then drain. Meanwhile, cut the bacon into cubes and fry in its own fat until golden. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Place the turnips in an ovenproof dish. Mix in the bacon and its fat. Bring the cream to a boil in a pan and simmer until it thickens, then add the nutmeg and salt and pepper. Stir this into the turnips and bake in the hot oven for 10 minutes.
