SEASONAL FOOD OF THE WEEK
Turnips come in a variety of forms, the most widely available being the squashed globe shape with creamy colored skin and a purple crown (where the turnip grew above the surface of the ground and was exposed to sunlight). They have a rounded flavour - sweet and slightly peppery - and are nutritionally rich.
