This unassuming vegetable has become an object of my fascination in the past weeks. About a month ago I tried a turnip for my first (!) time. Fresh and crisp with a hint of spice, I was sold. Not unlike my discovery of figs last year, I can't quite explain how I had lived so long without having tasted this vegetable. At the end of the growing season here in Holland, I'll enjoy it fully until the next time around (first image via, second image via).
