Turnips

  • Remove turnip greens from the root and store separately in an open or perforated plastic bag in the refrigerator. Use within a few days.
  • Refrigerate turnip roots unwashed in a loosely closed plastic bag. Use within 1 week for best flavor.
  • Scrub turnip roots with a brush or hands under running water just before using. Trim off the long thin tap root. Use a vegetable peeler to remove only a thin layer of skin.
  • Blanched or cooked turnips can be frozen. For best quality, use within 8 to 10 months.
