This was an experiment that worked out pretty well. Purple carrots and turnips. I added them to a sweet spiced honey butter. I added a dash of thyme but it probably isn’t even necessary. They turned out very tasty. My ingredients may be a bit off, as I was kind of dashing this and that, but it should be pretty close. The tender walnuts really matched the roots well. I am a fan of turnips now. I bet this would be good with apples.
2 tbsp honey (please make sure you’re using local honey)
3 tbsp butter
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp cloves
1 tsp thyme
dash of salt
2 tbsp chopped walnuts (optional)
Chop your carrots and turnips into thin slices. Add ingredients, toss. Place in small baking dish. Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until tender.
