For three consecutive weeks we've gotten a bunch of turnips in our organic produce box, so there's no help for it; we've got to eat some. While all the dark leafy greens and root vegetables and dark orange squashes are undoubetdly good for our health, they've caused our intake of cured meats to go up as well. We need a little bacon or sausage to help the chard go down.
I found a recipe in Moosewood Restaurant New Classics that involves cutting turnips into matchsticks, tossing them with olive oil and herbs, and baking them. Oiled up and caramelized, most things taste pretty good--but we still need something we actually like to go with. Like maybe grilled steak.
I canceled the produce box subscription after our four-week trial, but honestly, it felt like a breakup. Thanks to the weekly newsletter we got with each box, we know the names of the workers who picked our lettuce, that the farm cat passed away recently, and that one of the happy hens surreptitiously brooded and hatched a flock of chicks. I almost couldn't do it.
