Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
turnips are usually really gritty, you must wash and wash many times I usually wash 3-5 times until there is no more dirt in bottom of sink. The first time I cooked turnips they were really good but so gritty it was like eating the beach so we had to throw them out. soooooo wash good.
