Garlic-Mashed Turnips and Potatoes

Serves 6.

  • 1 pound turnips, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 pound potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream or plain yogurt
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the turnip, potato, and garlic for 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Drain and puree the vegetables and garlic through a food mill. (A food processor is not recommended, as it can turn potatoes very starchy.) Beat in the butter and sour cream and season with salt and pepper.

Quotes

"Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. Man may be civilized in some degree without great progress in manufactures and with little commerce with his distant neighbors. But without the cultivation of the earth, he is, in all countries, a savage. Until he gives up the chase and fixes himself in some place, and seeks a living from the earth, he is a roaming barbarian. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization."
~Daniel Webster
