If your turnips have the greens on them, cut the greens off from the roots and store them separately in your fridge. The roots without their greens will last for weeks.

Cooking inspiration

Japanese turnips are delicious raw, cooked or pickled. Slice them raw (carpaccio style) and eat them as a starter with good quality olive oil and salt, or add them to a salad. Roast them and toss with miso; braise them with a touch of butter or stock; make them into a curry; or saute them with a little honey. Feel free to cook the turnip greens and eat them separately or alongside their roots.
