  2. In a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, cook the turnips for about 5 minutes until just tender. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a shallow dish. Add the carrots to the boiling water and cook for about 5 minutes until tender. Drain.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the turnips in an even layer and cook over moderately high heat for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to moderate and cook, undisturbed, for about 4 minutes until lightly browned on the bottom.

  4. Stir in the carrots and peppers and season with salt and pepper. Cover the vegetables and cook, stirring occasionally, for about 3 minutes until the peppers are tender.

  5. Add the currants and their soaking liquid to the vegetables and cook for about 2 minutes until the liquid has thickened. Add the honey mixture, stir well and simmer for 1 minute.

  6. Season with salt and pepper and add the vinegar. Stir and transfer to a bowl.

  7. Serve hot or warm. Enjoy!
