Turnip Recipes, please!

Eaters, I have recently come to adore turnips. I cannot get enough of them--they are so juicy, sweet, tender. And I guess it's turnip season right now, so if you have some favorite turnip recipe from your great-great-great grandmother, please pass it on! How do you like to eat or prepare turnips?

My favorite two ways right now are first, to cube and steam the turnips, then saute them with butter, salt, and fresh dill (thanks, Deborah Madison!). Second, I like cubed turnips boiled with turnip greens and then drained and tossed with salt and pepper. The slightly spicy, bitter cooked greens nicely compliment the sweetness of cubed turnip flesh. I highly recommend it!
