Its A Success
I decided to try turnips this year to see if we as a family who have never eaten it before would like to add it to our diet.
Well I harvested the first lot today and used both the turnip and the leafy tops (mainly the younger leaves) for dinner this evening.
I roasted the turnips with chard also from the garden and sauteed the tops then tossed them in with spaghetti. we had the lot with stewed lima beans. And like it says in the title it was a success, everyone enjoyed them. They were surprisingly sweet and the tops were reminiscent of pak choi.
We'll try them raw next time in a salad or tossed with fried vege rice, haven't decided yet.
