Turnip talk and emigration

9 Nov


I am emigrating to Australia and my stay in my beloved French home is coming to an end. I will not be blogging for a week or so.

I thought I would leave you with an autumn winter revelation turnips. Peel off the outer skin which is bitter. Then use them in stews. Cut them up in quarters and blanche them in milk and use this milk plus turnips to make mash potatoes. Blanche them in milk and pour half the milk away and blend with a stick blender and serve with a medium rare steak and watercress dressed in olive oil. Cut into quarters and boil in a cup of water with a tablespoon of butter to serve as a side.

Will be back soon…

    Turnips fresh from the ground are something else!

    Bonjour Oliver,
    Je te souhaite un bon voyage et un bon séjour en Australie.
    Je suis très heureux de t’avoir rencontré à l’Adepy à la Roche sur Yon.
