    Serves: 4 as a starter


    750g medium turnips, cut into 8 wedges
    50g unsalted butter
    4 tbsp clear honey
    2 bay leaves
    5-6 thyme sprigs
    1 tsp salt


    1. Put all the ingredients in a large frying pan with 200ml water and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for about 15 minutes or until the turnips are soft to the core and slightly translucent.
