Turnips

"I can't believe I like turnips!"  --CSA member

Sean's favorite way to eat turnips is boiled and mashed, with butter, salt, and pepper; mine is added to vegetable soup. They are also good cut in pieces, oiled, and oven-roasted.  You can do pretty much anything with a turnip that you can do with a potato. The greens are also good--just cook them any way you'd cook kale, but not quite as long. The prickles on the leaves go away when they are cooked.
