Another day, another CSA share! Nicky and I are hanging out in the kitchen writing in front of the fire this while every one else sleeps. We’ve tried some great new recipes lately that I’ve included here today – Hope you enjoy them!
Hard to believe, but the next share (February 10th) will be our last! Enjoy those sweet, crunchy carrots while you can.

2 lbs. turnips
1 Tbsp. olive oil
Preheat oven to 400°F. Trim and peel the turnips. Cut larger turnips into large-ish bite-size pieces. Put turnips into a baking pan. Drizzle with olive oil. Use your hands or two large spoons to toss the turnips to coat them thoroughly with the oil. Sprinkle with salt. Add pepper, dried rosemary, parsley or thyme (Optional)
Roast turnips until tender and browned, start checking on them after about 30 minutes. Depending on the size and age of the turnips, it may take them up to an hour or more to get completely tender.

3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup milk

Place the potatoes and turnips in a large saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 20 minutes.
