Well, it does look as if summer is finally over, until you look at this week’s forecast. It’ll warm up again, if the forecasters are correct. Some of you have still not volunteered at the site. Please understand that if you cannot provide us with help for 2 measly hours, or send a family member or friend in your place, that you may not be invited back to the CSA next year. When you joined, you were informed that this was a requirement. Please sign up today – there are only five weeks left to the season.
This week’s recipe is a quick and tasty way to use turnips. Especially the tasty part!
MASHED TURNIPS WITH BACON
1 bunch of turnips (four or so)
3 TBS butter (you can use olive oil instead, if you like)
salt and pepper to taste
4 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 TBS chives, dried or fresh minced
Shaved parmigiano Reggiano cheese to taste (you can use grated parmesan or Grana Padano or any other grating cheese)
1.Peel and cut the turnips up, then cook in salted boiling water until tender.
2. Drain and mash, then add butter, salt and pepper.
3. Fold in the bacon and chives. Grate the parmigiana over the top and serve.
I think you’ll enjoy these turnips!
Have a delicious week.
