About This Food

Description

Turnips are members of the cruciferous family of vegetables best known for their potent cancer-fighting activity.

A favorite in Great Britain, young turnips have a delicate, slightly sweet taste that becomes almost "buttery" when roasted. Older turnips, however, become stronger in flavor and coarser in texture.

Turnips are an excellent source of vitamin C and contain powerful phytonutrients called glucosinolates.

Selecting & Storing

Look for fresh turnips that are small, yet heavy for their size. The roots should be firm and the greens should be brightly-colored. Store turnips in a cool (55°F), well-ventilated area such as a root cellar.
