Web Chef Review: Ontario Turnips at Harvest Barn Country Markets

Have a look at this gorgeous, huge, Ontario Turnip from Harvest Barn Country Markets that I picked up from their market in Niagara-on-the-Lake.

Web Chef Review: Ontario Turnips at Harvest Barn Country Markets - cookingwithkimberly.comYou can tell how very fresh it is because the coating is unmarred, the stem area is bright yellow, as well as the turnip tip, and the smell is sweet and appealing.

My family and I just can’t imagine the Holidays without serving mashed turnip. Beautiful turkey dinners just don’t make me happy without our traditional turnip being served.

Find out about this product on this webisode of What I Say About Food:

This hearty root vegetable is sweet, with a bit of a peppery flavor, and mashed with butter – it just makes my mouth water, thinking about it.

turnipsTurnips taste great if you roast or BBQ them, boil & mash them, or just cook them in boiling water and season with salt and pepper. You can stuff ravioli with them as well.

The wax coating, which helps to preserve the turnip, needs to be peeled off with the outer peeling, before preparation.

Harvest Barn Country Markets have plenty of these large, tasty turnips on hand. Whenever possible, Harvest Barn tries to bring in fresh produce – fruits & vegetables – from within 100 miles of their two locations – Niagara-on-the-Lake and St. Catharines, Ontario. You can also look them up online:

By sticking with their 100 mile policy, freshness is a given and you don’t need to concern yourself with bruising and damage during long distance transit. The produce can be harvested when ripe, rather than having to ripen during transport long distances, or arriving at the market shelves, while still green and tasteless.

Also, local farmers are given necessary support, making it possible for them to continue to maintain their farms, being able to provide customers with their amazing fresh produce every year, and they can then support their demanding farming lifestyle.

Ontario farms are able to gave us much needed fresh food, since the soils are fertile, and we have a temperate climate near the Great Lakes. Farming is a hard life and we need to appreciate how important it is to us all.
