Week #18 Note from the Farmer — How to prepare Turnip & Radish Greens, Turnip Recipes, Mizuna and Mustard Green Recipe

Dear CSA Member,

We finally broke the heat wave this week. It went from 90 degrees all week and now a seasonable 70 degrees. It officially feels like fall! You will start to notice your CSA shares are getting heavier as we continue to harvest the fall root crops such as turnips, fall radishes, and carrots. The greens on the turnips and radishes are beautiful, loaded with vitamins and should be eaten! They are delicious! Below are a few ways to prepare your radish and turnip greens.

Bella Luna Turnips & Greens: These turnips can be eaten raw or cooked. (Don’t forget to use the greens) They taste delicious raw sliced up on a salad, roasted, boiled or added to a soup. Check out these great links below to help you prepare your turnips including the Greens!
