Jake’s first post

-from Melissa Marino

I took the opportunity (while the hubs is away) to experiment with vegetables. Anyway, I had my first turnip: I peeled, boiled, mashed, added margarine, salt and pepper. Tasted like mashed, steamed cauliflower. Not the worst thing I’ve ever eaten, but surely there’s a better way to prepare them. Anybody have any good turnip recipes to share?


  1. Have your Grandpa pull it from the garden, wash it at the outside spigot, cut slices from it with his Boker pocket knife. Served this way, turnips were one of my favorites when I was four.

    Since then–not so much.
