I made this recipe. I had a look at a lot of recipes before I chose this one. Unlike the first reviewer I had great success. It surpassed all my expectations. It was lovely and savoury and had a wonderful sweetness to it. This is a good dish to serve family who think they don’t like turnips.

Don't make this, it taste awful. The carrot and turnips need to go through the food processor after they have boiled because they just don't mash with a fork. This taste and very bland and kind of bitter. The only thing I could do to save it was use a 1/4 of honey. Too much work for terrible outcome
