Veggie Unearthed: Tokyo Turnips

TokyoTurnips600

You’re not seeing double! We unearthed these same Tokyo Turnips last week. However, Mother Nature didn’t play nice with our farmers last week. Since the turnips were not ready to harvest due to the weather, we pushed their delivery schedule back a week. We thank you all for being so patient — We hope you enjoy the little gems this week!

Your turnips are coming to us from Frog Song Farm in Hawthorne, FL — less than 100 miles from most of our customers’ homes.

This week’s Tokyo turnips will be especially sweet and mild.The smaller size makes for a more tender root and greater flexibility in what dishes you can make with them.  This variety lends a crisp texture that is perfect for eating raw in salads and slaws but also pairs well cooked with their greens.

Once you receive your turnips, cut the greens from the roots, then place both in separate loosely wrapped plastic bags in your crisper drawer. The greens can keep for up to about four days, but as with most greens, we suggest you serve them as soon as possible for the highest quality. Turnip roots can keep for longer, but don’t leave in there too long. The flavor may turn bitter over time.

Steaming your turnip greens will help them retain their amazing nutritional properties. Just one cup of the greens contains 661% of your recommended daily allowance of vitamin K and 219% of your vitamin A. Though steaming packs the power punch, we personally love to saute the green just like we would spinach or chard — with olive oil, garlic, and bit of salt and pepper. Hmmm!
