  • Incredible!
    These are really good. I cut the olive oil in half, drizzled it over the sliced turnip then used my hands to coat them with it and that was more than enough oil. I went too heavy on the cayenne and used some garlic powder as well. Next time I may just use the garlic powder and some paprika. - 10/15/14

    Made with rutabaga and we loved them. Very sweet yet spicy from the cayenne. Will make again! - 1/9/10
