While scarlet turnips can be used in any turnip recipe, we like to harvest them when they are young and tender and can be eaten raw. If you find the skin too tough or too spicy it can be peeled, but we prefer to eat these turnips whole (like an apple!).
Also don’t forget to use the greens! When harvested young the greens on these turnips are especially tasty. Use them in place of mustard greens or kale. Remove greens from roots and store separately. Use the greens up within the week, but the roots will keep much longer.
