Hi. I'm Monte of Monte', and I want to show you how to make turnips in the Crock-Pot with your ham in the Crock-Pot. So what we're doing is we've got this nice big turnip. What's interesting is when I was growing up in Canada this was called a turnip. In this country it's called a rutabaga. But the truth is they're all turnips. So what we're going to do is we're going to cut this into smaller pieces and I'm going to add it to the Crock-Pot when my ham's cooking. Now you want to take off all of the bits of the turnip, anything that looks like this obviously you don't want to cook. You really want to take off this part of the turnip which is the actual roots of the turnip. So you want to get rid of all of that. And then you're left with this nice big chunk of turnip. Now just take the turnip, which this is a, turnip is a very dense vegetable. So it's not the easiest thing to cut in to, to be honest with you. I'm going to take some pieces and just cut them in to chunks like this. I'm doing these so that they have a little shape to them. Because they actually look pretty when they will come out of the Crock-Pot and we'll serve them. I'm doing sort of triangular shapes of turnip. You first eat with your eyes it's always nice if your food looks pretty. And what you'd like is probably a cup full of turnip pieces per person that you're serving. Now this is really easy. We've put our ham into the crock pot with two cups of orange juice. And we have then put some glaze on top of our ham. So all you're doing is just dropping these bits in. They're going to get all of this flavor from the orange juice which will be wonderful. So they're going to really really take on the flavor of the orange juice and the ham juices and they'll be absolutely delicious when you pull them out of here. And when you do that by the way, you could choose to if you'd like, you could puree them. I would serve them whole because I think they're, they would look very pretty on the plate. But if you want to do a turnip puree, with the resulting turnips in your Crock-Pot cooking method here, feel absolutely free to do that. So there we are. Put the top on, continual cooking, and you're making around dinner, it'll be made for you by the time you get home. I'm Monte Mathews from Monte' and I've just shown you how to make turnips in the same Crock-Pot that you're cooking your ham in. And for the best in all natural ham, you know where to come. Come to Monte' and we'll set you up with one of the best hams you ever tasted.
