Yesterday’s bag of produce from Blue Pike Farm included turnips. A lot of people aren’t quite sure what to do with them. Turnips are a great addition to soups and stews and casseroles. Peel and dice up then just toss in to your dish and cook until tender. You can also boil peeled and cubed turnips until tender then mash and treat like mashed potatoes- or combine with potatoes in a mash. Here is a recipe you might also like.


Finnish Turnips

4 small turnips, peeled and chopped

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup heavy whipping cream or half and half or evaporated milk

2 eggs, beaten

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup crushed croutons

2 tablespoons crushed croutons


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add turnips; cook until tender but still firm. Drain. In a large bowl, add turnips, butter, salt, cream, eggs, brown sugar and 1 cup croutons. Blend until well mixed. Pour into a 2 quart casserole dish, sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons crushed croutons. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes.
