Mashed Red Potatoes and Turnips

We recently joined a local foods subscription program at the Root Cellar. In addition, to supporting local farmers, I was excited to experiment with some new produce. In our first box, we had five turnips. I never buy turnips. What was I going to do with them?  The Root Cellar suggested mashed turnips. I also had a bag of red potatoes I'd picked up earlier in the week. I put the two together and the results were simple, a little earthy, and delish! They reminded us of one of our favorite side dishes at our favorite local jazz bar.

5-6 turnips (peeled and diced)
18ish small red potatoes (diced, not peeled)
¼ cup milk
¼ cup butter
¼ cup light sour cream
Salt & pepper (to taste)
1 teaspoon sugar
White cheddar (optional)

1. Put potato and turnip pieces in a large pot of water. Bring to a boil. Cook for 25 minutes
2. Drain. transfer to a large bowl and mash roughly.
3. Add milk, butter, sugar, salt, and pepper. Continue to mix and mash.
4. Optional: fold in white cheddar cubes
5. Serve and enjoy.
