- Early fall
- Gilfeather turnips are the VT state vegetable with a mild and sweet taste.
- These turnips can last in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
- Peel and cut the turnips into chunks of any size. Spread the pieces in a single layer on a baking sheet and place in the freezer. When completely frozen, transfer the turnips to a freezer safe container with 1/2-inch headspace to allow for food expansion. Frozen chunks may be added directly to stews or into the oven for roasting, or thawed before using.
