As Farmer David likes to say, “These are not your grandmother’s turnips.” I don’t think I’d ever had a turnip until we joined Hog’s Back Farm. Now, the return of the Hakurei turnips is a rite of early summer. They are sweet and mild. Delicious raw. We love them roasted with new potatoes, herbs, and carrots (once those arrive). From a visual standpoint, I like to the see the palette of the produce diversify as the season progresses. The turnips, along with a sampling of scallions, add the first burst of white.
