Turnips have a subtle peppery flavour and a purple or green tinged creamy white skin. Baby turnips have particularly tender flesh with a sweetish, delicate flavour. They can be served as an accompanying vegetable or included in stews. They can also be made into soup, mashed or puréed. Mini turnips are served raw or cooked. Grate raw mini turnips and include in salads or slice thinly and drizzle with French dressing or mayonnaise.
