"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Cook meat until very tender covered with water. When meat is done, add turnips, salt and pepper, pepper flakes and sugar. Barely cover with enough water to cover turnips. Cook at slow boil until turnips are tender. Best when warmed over the next day! Serve with hot buttered cornbread.
