|Cider Roasted Root Vegetables|
My grandfather was always the main cook at family holidays when I was younger, and although he was quite good at it, his methods were usually very simple: roasted meats, potatoes of some sort and boiled vegetables. While cooking this dish on Thanksgiving at my in laws house, I was taken aback when walking into the kitchen after having been in another room for a few minutes and realized that the meal I was cooking smelled just like my grandparents' kitchen on Thanksgiving so many years ago. Although I know for a fact that I never ate the boiled turnips mashed with butter, salt and pepper, the cooking of it smelled the same. And it is true that smell is the biggest trigger for memory because I could have sworn I was back in that warm cozy kitchen once again. That alone is reason enough to share this amazing, yet simple, recipe.
