Time to eat! Here is a quick simple recipe to turn your food plot turnips into good eating!
Turnips! Turnips! Turnips!
My official favorite vegetable since being introduced to these purple-top beauties in a Missouri food plot in 2018. Yum! Turnips are not only delicious and a deer attractant, they are low in calories and packed with vitamins and minerals.
According to healthline.com, one cup of cubed raw turnips contains 36 calories, 8 carbs, 2 grams of fiber, 1 gram of protein, 30% of the DV for Vitamin C, 5% of the DV for folate, 3% of the DV for calcium and phosphorus.
Purple top turnips are commonly planted in food plots. So if you are blessed with a bountiful harvest, and the deer haven't pillaged them all, here is a simple recipe for you to try.
