CSA members received purple top turnips today in their CSA share. I'll get you a photo soon.
Here is a popular recipe that a dear CSA member named Mareena contributed years ago, and its
still a favorite. Mareena moved south but the turnip fritters recipe continues to stay close
to the farm. By popular demand:
2-1/2 cups shredded turnip (peel it first)
1 onion, chopped finely (the recipe called for scallions which I didn't
2 c. flour
1 c. chicken broth (I also didnt' have this so I used water)
1 t. salt
Mix it all up. Drop by tablespoonful into hot oil--we have a FryDaddy, but
if you did it in a wok the recipe calls for about a cup of oil--and cook
until golden brown.
Dipping sauce--3 T. light soy sauce and 3 T. sweet wine vinegar or cider
