I’d never planted turnips before this year. Heck, I’d never even eaten a turnip before! But, this spring, I thought I’d give them a try.
Now they’re ready, and I had to look up recipes last night to figure out what to do with them. Mashed turnips seemed like a good place to start. Here was the result:
They were delicious! Even the kids liked them. They admitted that if I hadn’t told them they were turnips, they would have guessed they were mashed potatoes. The turnips did have a bit of an aftertaste that I don’t normally associate with potatoes, but otherwise, they were very similar in both taste and texture. Extra points because I got to use parsley from the garden as well. I’ll definitely be making these again. If you’re interested in trying the recipe I used, you can find it HERE. (I did dial back the pepper a bit, as the kids aren’t fans of spicy food – but otherwise, I left the recipe alone.)
From the dining room table, hoping to transplant some stray morning glories today,
