Ha..ha! Okay. So the title was a tad on the cheeze-ola side. I’m sorry. Kinda. 😉 Seriously though…aren’t turnips pretty? I think that they are lovely. (Is that my word lately or what?) They are actually a great source of Vitamin C, they are purple and pretty and yummy and humble and very likable, if you like them. Not everyone does. I have found this out over the years. Some people think that they are grand. Other people think that they are disgusting. I think that they are delish. I even put some in our chicken soup yesterday.
Whether you like turnips or not, I hope that you enjoy this picture. Turnips are something that you might not find along the dirt road, but if you take a dirt road… it could lead you to some.
Happy Tuesday, Dirt Roaders. Now, throw some turnips in a pot with a little water, bacon grease and red pepper flakes. Cook until tender. YUM!
Want to cut down on the starch in white potatoes? Rather than a pan of fried potatoes, do 1/2 potatoes and 1/2 chopped turnips…did this with my hubby and he didn’t know he was eating turnips until I told him. Yummy & so much better (especially for diabetics) than just straight potatoes. Good way to wean yourself off of potatoes…
Renee, That is wonderful! I need to pass that along to someone whose husband is diabetic also! Thank you so much for sharing!
