The humble turnip is another gem of the Fall season. It is hearty, inexpensive and very nutritious. Unfortunately it has almost fallen into obscurity here in America.
Many people have never eaten turnips, and that really is a shame.
They are full of vitamins, especially vitamin C which is hard to come by in the fall if you eat seasonally; and can be prepared many different ways.
This simple and delicious Japanese dish is one of the more unique preparations of turnips I have found. I plan to make it as soon as I can get my hands on the ingredients.
