6 Hakurei turnips, tops removed (save and throw in a stir fry)
2 cups cold water
3/4 cup mirin
1/4 cup white soy sauce
Trim turnips and peel with a vegetable peeler.
(1) Cut the turnips into sixths and
(2) place them in a saucepan with the remaining ingredients.
(3) Cover and bring to a simmer over medium-low heat; cook very slowly for about 15 minutes, or until just tender. Let cool to room temperature in the braising liquid, then drain and serve, great with steamed or roasted fish.
