Veggie of the Week: Hakurei Turnips
These turnips were so much fun to harvest. Their uniformly round roots poke up out of the dirt so it's easy to tell which ones are ready to pull. The slightest tug pops them up from the soil and a quick rinse reveals their lovely snow white skin. The roots are crisp and mildly-flavored making them a perfect addition to a raw garden salad. The greens can be mixed into salads, too. Of course they also can be cooked the traditional Southern style and served with cornbread. Want to try some? Come by our farm on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays or visit our booth at the Franklin Farmers Market on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until noon.
