Look at me! I"m a locavore.

Look at me I am eating seasonally and locally. My first share of the season is here. It includes:a spring lettuce mix, a large bok choy, three kinds of kale, turnips, radishes, argula, andbutter letttuce.
This will be the first time I have ever cooked a turnip. I read up a little and the turnip is an under rated vegetable. It's got all the things we look for high fiber, low fat, a mild sweet flavor which works well with others. It just doesn't get the respect it deserves.
People turning up their noses at turnips, give them a raw slice with some salt and lime juice and tell them it is jicama.
I cut off the turnip greens and added them to a pot of black bean soup.
Now what to do with these little beauties....
