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.
