I thought I hated turnips - we have a neighbor who grows a nice garden, but only shares when the produce is too old to be any good - he'll bring over beets and turnips with woody flesh and bug-riddled, old, tough greens, cauliflower heads that have gone to seed, cabbage that's all dried up, etc. When it's gone past what his wife will allow in the house, he's very generous, and then acts like he's done you a great service. All his neighbors have learned to turn down his produce offerings! :-\ :D :D :D

Sounds like your neighbor thinks his neighbors are compost heaps! :D :D :D :D

I know this is an old post, but it inspired me to try turnips for the first time this weekend.  I cut the turnip into cubes and fried them in a little peanut oil in my new (old actually, but new to me) cast iron skillet.  Now I am looking through the forum for more turnip recipes.  I think I will try turnip mash next.
