Hi Jennifer, Thank you for the warm welcome! I am so excited to have found your web site. I have been gardening for only 7 yrs so I still learning, but would be glad to share my good experiences, lol And yes, I'm going to try those raised beds this year. already planning next spring's garden!
hello jennifer it would be the same recipe as rutabaga pie only you use turnips. or you can
1 9-inch deep-dish piecrust
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
2 cups well-cooked, mashed turnip
1 cup heavy cream
Garnish: whipped cream
Heat oven to 450°. Line a 9-inch pie plate with dough and set aside. In a large bowl or blender, combine eggs, sugars, salt, and spices. Beat well. Blend in turnip. Add cream and mix well (it'll look soupy).
Pour into piecrust. Bake 10 minutes; then reduce oven temperature to 350° and continue baking 40 to 45 minutes. Pie is done when a knife inserted into the center comes out clean. Serve at room temperature or cold, topped with whipped cream
Thank you for the welcome. I'll have more time after the holidays to flesh out information about myself and participate in the Homegrown community, but right now I'm up to my eyeballs in cooking for Christmas! :-) I look forward to reading all the wonderful information you have here on your site.
Hi Jennifer! So glad to join! It looks like there is a plethera of knowledge and experience! :) Well as far as homemade gifts, I only made fleecey blankets this year. Last year was more fun, I made stuffed animals and cold weather accessories out of my old wool sweaters. :)
Thanks for your note. I am not much of a writer, but I'd love to give a post a try. We are about six months into the two-year plan, and it has been quite a process. I doubt we'll get there in two years, but it has been really fun trying, and it has forced us to look at aspects of our consumption that we never even thought about before. I don't think we'll end up grocery free, but I am still trying, and I do think we'll end up healthier, wealthier, and wiser!
Jennifer, thanks so much for the warm welcome! I'm very happy to be here :) So glad you enjoyed our blog too. It's really my own notebook, but it's good to know others enjoy it. I'd be very happy to share the galette recipe, I'll PM you about how best to do that, as I'm still finding my way around here. Looking forward to reading, watching, learning, and sharing, at Homegrown! ~Clare
I was born in Amarillo and moved down here because our children were down here. So we are trying to make a small homestead with chickens, ducks, a garden and orchard. We are going to be building a very small barn this small and add some goat to the mix. But I admit I am not quite use to the Weatherford / Springtown area just yet. My family is an old panhandle family coming to Texas in 1900's.
