Pinch of salt
Pinch of sugar
Bacon or fatback drippings
To prepare turnips for cooking, wash and clean them thoroughly. It takes several washings to get them just right. Cut up turnips. Heat bacon or fatback drippings in pan, and add turnips, ¼ cup water, and pinch of salt and sugar. Turn turnips once. As soon as turnips are done, remove from heat. Do not overcook. Turnips should be crunchy.
