Veggie Month: Turnips

(Eating them in your PJs is the way to go.)

I used this recipe, which is essentially for breaded turnips fries. Then I added a little Essence to kick the fries up a notch. Bryan had the bright idea of dipping them in apple sauce.

KK is cooking turnips next door tonight, too. Tomorrow's we'll compare notes--or the reactions of our husbands--and see whose recipe won.

From Wikipedia: Pliny the Elder writes that he considered the turnip one of the most important vegetables of his day, rating it "directly after cereals or at all events after the bean, since its utility surpasses that of any other plant."

So suck it, lima beans.
