If you remember, we have been getting our produce through Misfits Market. I did a whole post on that here. We have been very pleased with their service. While it is not perfect, and we do occasionally get less than desirable produce, the company is always quick to make it right with a credit for the next order.
One positive benefit is that we are eating a greater variety of veggies. We can get in a rut and just buy the same produce from the store. We are rural and our local selection isn’t always the best. Misfits has helped us to try veggies that we would have otherwise overlooked or ones that we haven’t been exposed to.
Are Turnips Tasty?
This is definitely a matter of opinion and up for debate…even within our home! My exposure to turnips has been the ones we have grown in the garden. Those were kind of spicy and not very pleasant. This leads me to believe that not all turnips are created equal. Some definitely have a more pleasant flavor than others. The turnips we have been getting from Misfits have been a purple top white globe. These are mild and not offensive.
