To make pickled turnips, I use the same recipe I use for pickling most things. My recipe consists of the following. One quart jar. One cup of vinegar. Dill from my garden. A hot pepper or two. One tablespoon of pickling salt and as many slices if whatever I am pickling that I can fit in the jar. One thing to note. This is my refrigerator recipe. I do not can this recipe.
Once all of the above ingredients are in the jar, I fill the rest of the jar with water. I will also throw in other random things that I have available at the time. This particular time I added summer savory from the garden and a sliced beet.
How did they turn out? The pickled turnips were pretty good actually. They had a bit of a radish taste but were surprisingly not that bad. I have let quite a few people try them and everybody seems to be nervous about them at first but end up trying more than one.
What do you guys think of my trial? I know one little guy that likes them.
