Turnip Pie

30 Oct


In another effort to find uses for turnips, Sweet Thing cooked a turnip pie. She fixes a pie with apples, raisins, caramel sauce, dark rum, and maple syrup baked in a graham cracker crust. Only this time she substituted turnips instead of apples and the pie was delicious. Apparently, you can substitute turnips for potatoes in many recipes and they will do just fine. Oh, and last week she sliced some of them wafer thin, sprinkled them with salt and pepper then baked them in the oven like potato chips. They didn’t get crisp like potato chips, but they sure were tasty. Hard times a-comin’, and turnips are easy to grow, just thinking ahead. Be prepared!
