Turnips 101 for YankeesIngredients:
- Organically Certified "Purple Top" Turnips from Hilltop Farms. 1 to 2 Pounds
Separate the leaves from the stems and the turnips from the stems, wash all of it and rinse. Put the leaves in a big pot with about 2 cups of water for about 10-15 bunches of turnips, cut the turnips into slices and put them in the pot with the leaves. Bring to a boil, turn the heat down and simmer 10-15 minutes or until the leaves/turnips are tender. Then chop it up. I add vinegar and salt, or whatever spices you want. Vinegar just seems to go perfectly with any type of greens. These are even better the second day!
Thanks to Member and southern girl, Lorraine Price, for the recipe. The title was my idea! - Farmer Fred
