  • Toss turnips with oil, garlic, ginger and 2 teaspoons fresh thyme (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme) in a large bowl. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast until starting to brown on the bottom, about 15 minutes. Turn the turnips over and continue to roast until tender and golden, 15 to 20 minutes more.

  • Whisk honey, vinegar and nutmeg in a large bowl. Add the turnips and toss to coat; season with pepper. Stir in bacon and the remaining 1 teaspoon fresh thyme (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme).
