Instructions
  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil over high heat. Add the turnip and potatoes and cook for about 20 minutes, or until tender when tested with a small sharp knife. Drain well. Return the vegetables to the pot and let dry out for a minute or two over the warm burner.
  2. Add the butter and about 1 cup of the milk and mash the vegetables using a hand-held masher or an immersion blender. It’s fine for the mixture to be slightly chunky.
  3. Stir in the chives (if using) and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add the additional 1⁄2 cup milk or cream as needed for the desired consistency.
  4. Serve hot.
