  7. Scottish Clapshot

    If you want to be pleasantly surprised then try this clapshot recipe.  Clapshot is a traditional Scottish dish that is essentially mashed potatoes, but using half potato and half turnip really takes the dish up a notch.  Turnips are less dense than potatoes as you will see when boiling... turnips float while potatoes sink.  This lower density of turnips compared to potaotes gives a very light texture to the final dish.  It almost tastes as if cream or a large amount of butter was added the way clapshot tastes.  Give clapshot a try!
