Happy Terra Madre day! How did you celebrate today? Do you know that we have a local root vegetable on the Slow Food Ark of Taste called Gilfeather Turnip? See below fore more info and suggestions for a recipe.
An unusually mild tasting, egg-shaped, rough-skinned native turnip.It is best eaten after a frost when it creamy white flesh sweetens. Though suitable to be grown in most climates, a frost adds to it's taste and texture. Guarded during Mr. Gilfeather's life to prevent wide spread propagation, we are happy to report that some seeds were saved and the Gilfeather turnip continues to be grown.
