Turnips

                                                               

About meTurnips are a root vegetable, related to arugula and radishes, which are members of the mustard family. We like growing two types of turnips, white and purple. The white turnips are usually smaller and sweeter. These guys are great eaten raw in salads, but can be cooked as well. The purple variety has a bit more of a bite. They are usually a little larger and have a bit of heat or mustard flavour to them. We like cooking, roasting, or mashing this type. The greens from both types can be eaten raw or cooked.

StorageStore turnips separately from the stems and leaves. Place roots in a cotton care bag, or paper towel, and then place inside a reused plastic bag, or container inside your fridge crisper. They will keep for at least two weeks.
