What is it?
Turnips are a member of the brassica family, and are the summery cousin of the larger swede. They tend to have a purple, yellow or white skin, with a white flesh.
What to do with it?
Simply roast them with a drizzle of honey and oil or butter, or if you’re fancying something more flavourful, try this aromatic recipe with your new potatoes.
How best to store?
If your turnips, have tops, chopp them off and treat like a leafy green by keeping them chilled and moist. As for the roots, keep them in a cool, dry place.
When are they in season?
Early – mid summer.
