     We used a pear to sweeten the strong flavor of
   turnips, then added some roasted garlic for a robust
   alternative to mashed potatoes.
     Steam turnips over boiling water until fork tender,
   about 15 minutes. Drain turnips and place in a food
   processor or blender along with pear, garlic, and
   margarine. Process until smooth, adding skim milk as
   needed. Season with salt and pepper.
     Makes 8 servings.
