Serve with the Samuel Adams Boston Lager Grilled Loin of Cervena Venison

Ingredients

  • 2 Pounds ultra baby white turnips, with tops
  • 8 Ounces cold, high-quality Irish butter
  • 1 Tablespoon organic honey
  • 4 Ounces Samuel Adams Boston Lager

Directions

Separate the stems and leaves from the turnips themselves, leaving a ¼ inch stem on top of each turnip. With cold water and a clean rag, gently clean each turnip, keeping the skin on.

Blanch the turnips in boiling salted water for 3-4 minutes until tender but not mushy. Once blanched, remove the turnips from the boiling water and cool on a plate or small sheet tray.

Take the removed tops of the turnips and soak in salted water to remove any sand or debris. Dry the turnip tops on a sheet tray lined with paper towels or a salad spinner.

Brush the turnip leaves with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the leaves until lightly charred and tender, flipping them often.

In a small pot add the 4 ounces of Samuel Adams Boston Lager and organic honey. Stir and reduce by ½, then add the blanched baby turnips (they can be cut in halves or fourths if desired). Once the turnips are added, turn down the heat and slowly emulsify the butter until a sauce starts to coat the turnips.

Season the turnips with salt and pepper and plate with the grilled turnip leaves.

Turnip Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Turnip Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
