Turnips and Rutabagas are apparently easy to grow…..I did not know this…next year I will grow a much larger patch. I mix mine in with mashed potatoes or chop them up in a roasted vegetable medley coat with olive oil and bake but many people do not know that turnips provide a significant source of dietary fiber and potassium. They also are long storing vegetables and will keep in the refrigerator up to 4 months! Wow! This is a frugalites dream! This way you can plan for turnips to be used in soups and in your long term cooking plans. Turnip Greens are very high in Vitamin A and manganese and you can cook them just as you would collards or toss them in a stew or if all else fails the chickens absolutely love them! 😉
I have included a link to a recipe I plan to try called Finnish Turnips at All Recipes.com. It actually looks like it is almost a dessert – I will post a review soon! Enjoy your summer ya’ll!
