I planted some purple top turnips for the chickens to supplement their food. I got the bright idea to try some. I fried some onions then added water and beef bouillon then the turnips. Yuck yuck yuck is all I can say!! :yuck: I tried it raw to and spit that right out!! More for the chickens I guess.

I bought some non homogenized low temp pasteurized milk at the Amish store. I doesn't make me want to spit it out but it does have a different taste, kinda like a wang. I'm drinking it but it's different.

I may acquire a taste for the milk but not the turnips.

I'm not familiar with turnips, but I buy some to put in stew. They have purple tops, and taste radishy? I like them raw or cooked. Maybe not the same?

Cow milk is very sensitive to what they've eaten. I always took morning milk for the house...after they'd had nothing but cottonseed cake and grain, plus good alfalfa through the night. If I took evening milk (after they had pastured), it always had an off taste, sometimes a very strong taste! Boys said they could tell the difference between store milk and morning milk,.. I couldn't. Hardly ever skimmed cream off either.

I just started liking turnip greens a few years ago. I've never cooked them. They are very good cooked right. I like mustard greens too.

I never liked turnips till I got married. My MIL cooked some and invited me to taste. I just knew I would barf but not to hurt her feeling, I did taste them. She had mashed them, added butter, salt and pepper and 2 Tablespoons of sugar. I have loved turnips ever since. In fact I had them for dinner today.

I saw a video of some being cooked with apples to take the bitter out. I was going to give these to the chickens but I may add some butter and sugar. Then again I don't know if I will ever get over eating them!! Lol
