Eastham Turnip Pie

Ingredients

1 9-inch deep-dish piecrust
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups well-cooked, mashed turnip
1 cup heavy cream
Garnish: whipped cream

Instructions

Heat oven to 450°. Line a 9-inch pie plate with dough and set aside. In a large bowl or blender, combine eggs, sugars, salt, and spices. Beat well. Blend in turnip. Add cream and mix well (it’ll look soupy).

Pour into piecrust. Bake 10 minutes; then reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue baking 40 to 45 minutes. Pie is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve at room temperature or cold, topped with whipped cream.
