Turnips are available throughout the fall, winter and
Usage and Cooking Strategies:
Turnips can be eaten raw, and are also great cooked.
Try them roasted in the oven or sliced and sautéed
or stir-fried. They pair well with cream and butter.
Use the greens raw, in a salad or sautéed, like
spinach or kale.
When you bring home turnips, remove the greens from
the turnip root, when you keep the greens on they will
continue to remove moisture from the turnip. Use turnips
within 4-5 days for best flavor.
To preserve turnips, pickle them in a vinegar/water
solution to use throughout the year.
