Turnips Braised with Honey, Butter and Thyme

*Turnips Braised with Honey, Butter and Thyme*
Serves 6

An easy and delicious way to get everyone to eat their turnips!  I've never had anyone turn these down!

3 medium white turnips
250ml of chicken stock (1 cup)
(You may not need it all)
a knob of butter
1 dessertspoon of liquid  honey
1/2 tsp dried thyme
fine sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Peel the turnips.  Cut them into like sized fingers, about 2 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Place them into a deep skillet.  Add half of the chicken stock, the butter, honey, and thyme.  Bring to the boil, then cover and reduce the heat.

Cook at a quick simmer for about 8 to 10 minutes until they are almost tender, adding additional chicken stock if needed. Once they get to that stage, remove the cover, season to taste with some salt and pepper, and then turn up the heat beneath the pan.  Continue to cook, gently stirring occasionally until all of the liquid has evaporated, and they are quite tender and glazed with the honey butter mixture.  Serve hot.
