6 cup  fresh cubed turnips
1 tsp  salt
1 tbsp  sugar
2 tbsp  Margarine & Butter, blend, with soybean oil
0 1/4 cup  evaporated milk
1 pinch  salt and pepper
  1. Choose turnips the size of your fist or smaller. Cut off the tops in a thin layer. Peel the turnips with a vegetable peeler. Don't bother cutting off the root end, instead peel it clean with the vegetable peeler. Cut the turnips into medium sized chunks. Measure 6 full cups of them.
  2. Bring 2 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot on the stove. Add the salt and sugar.
  3. When the water boils, add the turnips. Boil for about 20 minutes, or until the turnips are tender. Drain well.
  4. Add the margarine and evaporated milk. Using electric beaters mash the turnips until they are smooth.
  5. Season to taste. Reheat and serve hot.
