•Although available year-round, turnips are BEST during their peak season, which is October through March.

•Raw turnips will last up to 2 weeks in your refrigerator crisper.

•Turnips provide a great crunch and texture, so be sure not to overcook.

•Turnips are well known for their bitter flavor if not prepared correctly. When boiling your turnip, and to avoid changing the water up to 3 times (!), place a potato in the water and cook right alongside the turnip. The bitter flavor will disappear!
