I love when my husband cooks dinner. Everything is always delicious and it is nice to sit back and just be the photographer. He loves experimenting with recipes just as much as I do and he works on his "presentation" just to amuse me. I love the edible flowers, turnips and lettuce from our garden as garnish in this one!
This recipe has quickly become a family favorite. We can't wait to try variations of this recipe when figs are in season and creating a glaze with a little fig and balsamic vinegar or possible a ginger infused glaze with peaches.
Turnips with Bourbon Peach Glaze - Boil cubed turnips then add to a baking pan with the short ribs. Drizzle the glaze over the meat. Put in the oven on broil for 15 minutes. Drizzle the glaze over the short ribs and turnips while they are cooking about every 5 minutes or until the glaze starts to carmelize on the ribs. Our 3 year old said they tasted like honey even though he was telling us that he didn't want to eat turnips just minutes before.
Bourbon Peach Cobbler - Take the remaining peaches (without the liquid) and put them in a baking dish or ramekins with crumbled pre-made pie crust on top or a mixture rolled oats, brown sugar and butter and broil for 10 minutes or until the crust starts to brown. Or, try this recipe for Bourbon Peach Cobbler.
