    We'll be doing a fall crop of turnips this year. Never grown them, rarely ever ate them. Not sure why I'm planting them, but I am!

    Do you have any killer turnip recipes?

    Never had turnip. What do they taste like? Turnip?
    That seems a bit.........large. Radioactive waste nearby? J/K.
    Can you dry those and burn in the stove?

    Turnip tastes like a rutabaga. ;) Hehheh . . . pretty much the same thing . . . or a variety.

    I find that they have a mild taste . . . kind of a cabbage like taste . . . then again other folks may say they taste different.

    As for the size . . . BG does live in an area of Alaska that grows fantastically large crops -- i.e. think monster cabbages.

    Only in Alaska! I once saw a cabbage brown there big as an Atlantic Giant Pumpkin.

    I love turnips, especially after the frost kisses them.

    Eat turnips peeled and sliced with dip, along with other vegetables. Also, you can make steam them with butter, and if there is any left, mash them up together with potatoes and shredded carrots. My mother in law called it "potch". They also did the same by mixing equal parts of mashed rutabagas, parsnips, and potatoes. Don't forget the butter and cream.

    I make Clapshot with 1/3 taters/parsnips/rutabaga and crumbled bacon. Boil the veggies and mash em up,add butter milk and crumbled up bacon(6-8 slices) and 1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg.

    We grilled some the other day and that was quite tasty too. They have a mild, somewhat nutty taste. My wife makes a turnip or rutabaga gratin casserole that is to die for.
