Have you ever tasted a turnip? If not, what are you waiting for? It’s time to turnip! Part of the root vegetable family, they are a versatile veggie that might as well be a kitchen staple. You can use them in so many ways.
Turnips are in season during the late fall. Run to your local grocery store and pick some up. Turnips are root vegetables, meaning they grow underground, just like potatoes. They have a sweet, peppery, radish-like taste. You’ll recognize a turnip in the grocery store by its purple top. When turnips grow, the tops peek out of the soil and say hello to the sun. The sunlight causes the otherwise white turnip to turn purple on top. This makes them a colorful addition to many types of recipes. Purple turnips are the most common, but you might spot white or yellow turnips at the store, too. Whichever type of turnip you find, give one of the Top Ten Ways to Enjoy Turnips a try.
