Greg's Mom's Country "Potatoes"

Turnips and bacon are traditional Irish foods. Sadly, some people are convinced that they hate turnips, usually due to an unpleasant childhood dining experience. When Greg and his sister were kids, their clever Mom succeeded in getting them to happily eat turnips (which the kids swore they hated) by calling them "country potatoes." No doubt the addition of bacon also helped!

1 lb turnips, washed, peeled & chopped into small pieces
3 to 6 thick slices of bacon
Salt to taste (you can omit if you prefer)
A small bunch of parsley, chopped

Boil turnips in a large pot until soft and easily mashed, about 20-30 minutes. While the turnips are cooking, fry the bacon until fully cooked but not too crispy. Place cooked bacon on paper towels to drain. When turnips are done, drain well and mash in a large bowl. Coarsely chop the cooked bacon and add to the turnips, together with the chopped parsley. Stir to combine (you can add a dollop of butter or a splash of cream for added richness), then serve--and remember to call them "country potatoes" (not turnips) if you're serving to picky eaters!

Operation Sauce Drop News

Operation Sauce Drop is our non-profit program that sends free gift boxes of BBQ sauce and hot sauce to US military personnel stationed abroad, at absolutely no cost to them. First, the good news: We've now shipped over 1,060 free gift boxes to our deployed military, thanks to donations from folks like you (and Carolina Sauce donates the labor involved and covers all admin/overhead costs). You can see how much this program means to our troops when you read their latest thank-you notes with photos. Now the bad news: Operation Sauce Drop has run out of money and cannot fulfill pending gift box requests or accept new requests from our troops until more funds come in. Our cost to purchase and ship each free gift box currently runs around $25, and the FULL AMOUNT of all donations received is used SOLELY to pay for the cost of the sauces & shipping. Please help us continue to send a taste of home to our troops by donating to Operation Sauce Drop. You can also shop to support Operation Sauce Drop, where some or all of the purchase price of the products goes straight into Operation Sauce Drop (you get the products you order, and the money you pay is used to send free sauce to the troops). Our troops will thank you for your support!
