pears, potatoes, turnips - I have all those things and I saw this recipe on Epicurious -
It sounded wonderful --but I only needed for far fewer people and with a lot less butter. I roasted two pears split and seeded, two potatoes cut in quarters and two turnips (small) cut in half and one fresh slightly hot pepper. Roasted in 450 oven with a little olive oil until everything was soft enough to mash.. Really Really really good. There is no picture because it got eaten before I could take one!
