[TURN THE OVEN ON TO 300F.] Add the apples and cook for another 15 - 20 minutes, until turnips are fully cooked (a knife should slip in and out with no trouble). Drain and return to hot pot. Mash til smooth (a little texture is good, these mash very easily with a hand masher). Add the chicken stock, olive oil, and half & half. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
