Turnips Glaces with Sugar

Thumbnail of Turnips Glaces with Sugar recipe

Turn about two dozen pieces of turnips into the form of rings about two inches in diameter, or else in the shape of small pears; put them into a deep sautapan, spread with fresh butter, and strewn with about two ounces of pounded sugar; moisten with about half a pint of good stock, and set the turnips to simmer very gently over a moderate fire for about twenty minutes: when they are nearly done, remove the lid, and place them over a brisk fire, to boil the moisture down to glaze, gently rolling the turnips in this with great care, to avoid breaking them; they must then be dished up in neat order, and the glaze poured over them.
