For some reason I have the biggest turnip crop I have ever had. I have taken 8 5 gallon buckets full out of it so far and that was just off of 1 edge. I preserve turnips in straw and they stay fresh until it starts getting warm but this year I am looking for something new. I have heard of TurnipKraut but haven't ever made the stuff. I have found a couple recipes by searching google but I was just wondering if any of you have ever made it or have some other way to can them. I would bet there are 100 5 gallon buckets of turnips in the garden and I hate to see stuff go to waste.

You don't have a surplus of turnips, you have a shortage of pigs.

No I have those too. I was just looking for a way for me to be able to eat them.

I just slice them up and eat them raw, snack on them constantly. I don't have truckloads though. Just stew them up.

Farmers markets around here are only around from early spring to early October.


I have been searching around and think I have found a recipe that I am going to try. Going to try a small batch at first to see if I even like it before I make a bunch though.

I don't have nothing to add to this thread other than to say the first buck I ever killed back on November 21, 1979 I was leaning against a tree eating a turnip I had just peeled. This thread brought back that memory since tomorrow is the first day of buck rifle season. The 21st will be a on a Wednesday this year also.

Dehydrate them and make turnip chips.
should keep for years in a vacuum seal bag.

Check with the produce manager at a grocery store. You may be able to sell them.

You might try selling some to a local grocery store.
If I were closer I'd buy a bucketful from you!
