SWEET GROUND TURNIPS

I haven’t found any turnip recipes elsewhere yet, so I made this one:

1-1/2 turnips (I had a big one and a small one about 1/2 the size)
1/4 onion
1 t apple cider vinegar (or more to taste, for sweetness)

  • Finely grind the turnips and the onion in a food processor.
  • Add apple cider vinegar and mix well.

EAT

You could do the same with beets.  You could even combine beets, turnips, and maybe carrots.  If you fancy, you could add herbs or garlic. This could be part of a salad, or you could wrap it in a leaf, if it is dry enough. 

TURNIPS ARE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST

It is sad, but true: people are discriminating against turnips  Poor  turnips!!!   I have a passel of turnips here, because I am slower at eating them than the farmer is at growing them, and I need to do something with them.   I looked in almost every recipe book I have, but not a one had a recipe for turnips.  Two mentioned turnips as a member of the brassica family, and one of them sniffed and said that turnips are not gourmet vegetables (how cruel of them to say that right out loud)

What to do?   Quite obviously, I must devote some time to finding turnip recipes.
