Turnips are root vegetables.  Root vegetables are high in nutrition and low in calories. According to my Grandma, if you see or if you are eating turnips in a dream, you will be able to settle some current problems in your life, and the vision is also symbolic of fortune, success, and sympathy for others.


2 lbs. turnip roots, 2 1/2 T. bacon fat, 2 T. butter, melted, 1 tsp. salt,  1 tsp. onion powder, 1 1/2 tsp. granulated garlic, 2 T. ranch seasoning, 1/4 cup red onions sliced, garnish with chopped flat-leaf parsley.

Peel turnips, slice 1/2-inch thick. Get out a bowl, add the melted butter, salt, onion powder, granulated garlic, ranch seasoning, mix well.  Add the turnip slices, marinate for 15-minutes.  Get out a heavy skillet, add the bacon fat and butter, heat to medium-high, or 350 degrees.  Drain the turnip slices and add them to the skillet. Fry, the turnip roots for 1-2 minutes on each side or until tender and the edges, are brown, add the onion slices.  Fry another 2-minutes.  Add 1 tablespoon of the marinate, continue to cook for 3 minutes, add salt and pepper to taste.  Put a top on the skillet and steam for a couple of minutes.  Remove the turnips from the skillet, garnish with chopped flat-leaf parsley and serve.
