Anyone do any freezing or canning of them. I've only grown them for 3 years now and they store well in the fridge,but looking for other options.

We dry them for soup and gratin turnips. We put a hoop over them, lay a foot of chopped straw on top and eat all winter. We also throw them in the hay pile for the animals, I have eaten many of those. Peel for the animal and eat the good part. They get sweeter the longer in storage....James

I've canned them and frozen them. I like them better frozen because they turn darker and stronger tasting when you can them. But they're still good for soups, and easy to use since they are already cooked.

I was woundering about canning. I had seen a post on another site, so needed to know more. That is interesting about the flavor. I'm not real crazy about turnips as it is, but sinse they are something I can grow quite well, I figure the smart thing to do is learn more. Thanks everyone.

I've never tried canning turnips, but I do dehydrate them. Makes a tasty chip!

eta: A mandoline slicer makes for quick prepwork.
