Glazed turnips (Canadian recipe) – No 108


A blog reader, Cynthia, had kindly sent me a book called “Wartime Recipes from the Maritimes”. And this recipe is from this great little recipe book. I’d like to start to include some international wartime recipes this year in my blog..

This was delicious! I just ate this for my lunch and it was quick and nutritious and has provided me with most of my fibre for the day as well as filled my tummy.

I will definitely make this again, often!
