They make great pickles also. I like them for sweet pickles with some hot pepper flakes mixed in.lesa said:How funny!! I am glad they were so delicious! Were you harvesting them early- or are they meant to be that size? The turnips I am familiar with are quite large and often woody. How lucky you are to be thinking of planting another row, now! I am getting ready to plant snow, on this side of the country!
I love this variety pot-roasted with duck as they cook through in approx. the same time.....don't let them get too brown though. Their green are good too, cook like spinach. Nothing's wasted....!!
I also cut them into very thin discs & use them in stir-fries & in salads. They are also good coarsely grated into coleslaw along with carrots.
