For a root vegetable recipe that would produce vegetables with nicely browned exteriors and tender, creamy interiors, all accented with a lightly sweetened glaze, we started by cutting the vegetables into large pieces of equal size. Then, by caramelizing the vegetables in butter and simmering them in a combination of broth, seasonings, and a small amount of sweetener, we created tender but not mushy vegetables. Once we removed the vegetables from the pan, it was easy to create a glaze for our root vegetable recipe by quickly reducing the remaining liquid.

When selecting turnips, choose the smallest available (about the size of plums), as they tend to be less fibrous and less bitter than their larger counterparts. Do not substitute yellow turnips for the white turnips called for in this recipe.
