Sweet-savory is a classic combination on Thanksgiving tables, with all those apples and cranberries showing up in stuffing and other sides. But here's one take on the pairing we hadn't seen before: turnip and pear. Cooked and pureed, the vegetable and fall fruit are rich and satisfying, yet with a bright, sugary pop. Along with ginger, cinnamon, a touch of orange marmalade and some black pepper, the dish makes for a terrific alternative to a traditional sweet-potato casserole.
