I do not know. Does it is international that children just do not like some food? Like blue cheese and olives? ( or children who grow up in the Mediterranean are fond of olives??)turnipstew (11)

When I was a child I hated braised and boiled carrots and turnips. And, blue cheese and olives, of course 🙂
Now I am grown up and I can say that there is nothing better than braised turnips.

Sweet of turnips are balanced with cranberry acid. And this is the perfect side dish. This time I served it with grilled cheese.turnipstew (9)

  1. This is not a combination I would have thought to try. It sounds interesting, as I enjoy small sweet turnip roots. Your pictures are stunning. What type of cheese did you use for the grilled cheese?
