 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4       c            Millet
    6       c            Water
    1 1/2   ts           Salt
    4       c            Diced turnips
 
   Wash millet and drain with a fine mesh strainer until
   water comes clean. Place millet in a heavy pot and add
   cooking water. Let soak 4-8 hours or overnight before
   cooking.
   
   Add salt and diced turnips. Bring to a boil, place
   heat deflector under the pot, then simmer over low
   flame for 45-50 minutes. For a creamier texture, allow
   millet to sit in the pot 10 minutes before uncovering.
   Mash with a potato masher; if necessary, add a cup of
   water while mashing to make a mashed potato
   consistency. Transfer to a serving bowl and cover.
   Serve with an ice cream scoop and top with gravy.
