Celebrate the culture of agriculture & share skills (Growing! Cooking! Eating!)


....I first tried hakurei turnips a few years ago when I found them in my CSA share. I was still new to local eating and the varied vegetable scene (aside from supermarket veggies like tomatoes, peppers and other ”regular” vegetables). “Oh my,” I thought, “here’s another vegetable that I don’t recognize, can’t pronounce, and have no idea how to prepare.” When I found out that I could eat not only the little white, round turnips but the greens too, my enthusiasm perked up. I love eating vegetables that have multiple edible parts – it must be the recycler in me that loves it so much. Hakurei turnips are low-waste vegetables. You cut off very little of each end for scraps, you can use the leaves which sit on very short stems, and you don’t have to peel each turnip. Yes, you heard correctly, you don’t have to peel them, which means they should be in your “I need a quick weeknight meal” rotation. Want know how I prepare them? It’s easy, tasty, healthy and fast....
