I made this with carrots and turnips, and it came out wonderful. The people in my party did not even recognize them as turnips, they were so sweet. Will definitely make again.
Cider-Glazed Roots with Cinnamon Walnuts
From EatingWell: November/December 2008
Here we roast a variety of roots with a brown sugar-cider glaze. Make them instead of candied sweet potatoes at your Thanksgiving celebration. If you include red beets, the whole dish will take on a gorgeous ruby hue.
3 Reviews for Cider-Glazed Roots with Cinnamon Walnuts
Instead of baking this in the oven I put the vegetables and cider ingredients in my slow cooker on low for about 8 hours. (I did stir it a few times during the day) It came out awesome, and I didn't need to use up any of my precious oven space.
Turnips are not people's favorite food, but this recipe is magic. I got a bunch of turnips from my local CSA and tried this recipe out along with a bag of baby carrots - pretty much to use up the veggies I had in the fridge. I reduced the butter (I used a tsp of Earth Balance) doubled the cinnamon and it was fantastic. I only had apple juice (not cider) and it worked just fine.
