Instant pot… Turnip

I absolutely love having turnip at our Thanksgiving meal and or Christmas holiday dinner table. This year I found some nice large turnips at one of the Amish farms, and as much as I love turnip I dreaded the thought of having to cook it once again.

So this year I decided to give it a try in the Instant pot. Never again will I boil it on the stovetop for what seem to be an endless amount of time.

Here is how I cooked it…

It is called Turnip or waxed Turnip
Cut the outer skin off very carefully with a sharp knife
Continue to cut until you have a clean turnip.
Once clean… Rinse off and start cutting into cubes.
Try to cut into similar sized pieces.
Give it a nice rinse.
Pour into the Instant pot and add a 1/2 to 1 cup of water, depending on how much and how large your turnip is.
Use manual pressure at 4 minutes, once done use the rapid release.
I use a plastic measuring cup in place of a steam cup when I do a rapid release.
Open the lid and carefully check with a fork to make sure they are as tender as you would like.
I add one stick of butter, and salt and pepper to taste.
Use a potato masher to break up the turnip to the consistency that you like.
Pour into your favorite bowl and enjoy as a delicious side dish.
