Turnips are often thought to be bitter, but these turnips are very tasty and sweet. Aptly named for their light purple tops that fade to a white tail, their centers are white with a mild, sweet flavor.
Purple Tops store for a long time, especially in the refrigerator, wrapped in a cloth vegetable bag or damp paper towel inside a perforated plastic bag.
HOW OFTEN DOES JUICE SPLASH OUT OF A TURNIP when you cut it open?? I find that it always does with these, and that's a first for me. Delicious sliced thin and raw, or just parboiled with butter, salt and pepper. As simple and delicious as it gets. THANKS!
