    Default Turnips

    Are they underrated/underused?

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    You hem me in -- behind and before;
    you have laid your hand upon me.
    Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

    I sure hope more people turnip for this poll. How can I have reliability data regarding the feelings of the community towards turnips without more participation?

    Anyway, for participating, I wish for turnips to show up in your life soon.

    The problem with turnips is that you forget about them, which makes no sense because they are delicious. Perhaps it's because they occupy that unstable space between a potato and a carrot, and if you don't focus with intent on a turnip, the mind slips magnetically to the aforementioned root polarities.

    I put turnips in my roast vegetables today because of this thread.

    Turnips are pretty bomb. Especially in greens.
    And so long as you haven’t experienced this: to die and so to grow,
    you are only a troubled guest on the dark earth

    Are turnips and rutabagas the same thing? One of those makes me want to puke...and hide them in my napkin and ask to be excused holding that mush in my hand to secretly flush down the toilet so I can still have dessert...

    They're not the same. I'm not a fan of rutabaga but turnips are delicious roasted and of course you can cook the green too.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    Ew. Rutabagas even look like something you should never put into your mouth. Thank you for this visual warning.

    I cooked turnips not too long ago. They were good until I got to the bitter aftertaste. Mostly they were pretty tasteless. I've read that if you cook them properly some of the bitterness goes away, but I haven't tried it yet. I think the only reason turnips exist is because they were one of those root vegetables that people could grow in colder climates and keep all winter long, before refrigerators existed - not because they were so awesomely delicious that the whole world absolutely had to have turnips.
