“T” is for Turnip
“A turnip cannot be coaxed, squeezed, or cajoled into producing blood. All efforts at obtaining blood from this vegetable will be futile.”
There you have it.
You can’t squeeze blood out of a turnip.
But…. us Southern folk can create pot liquor out of Turnip greens.
That’s right, pot liquor. That green juice produced from stewing the green tops of the Turnips.
Toss in a little ham hock, a ton of greens (they cook down) and season with salt and stew, stew, stew and you’ll get pot liquor.
Sop it up with a hunk of corn bread and Ooouuuweeeboy!
Liquid gold…er I mean liquid green
Nectar of the Gods
Breakfast of Champions
Good for what ails ya
Keep’s things moving
Try it sometime…you’ll like it.
