Type of Dishvegetable


  • 3 pounds small white turnips
  • 3 tablespoons salt
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 pounds fresh rhubarb spears
  • ½ to ¾ cup sugar, depending on the redness of the rhubarb


  1. Peel the turnips and coarsely grate them into a bowl. Toss with salt and vinegar. Cover and set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.

  2. Cut the rhubarb into 2-inch pieces. Cut each piece lengthwise into 3 strips. Wash in cold water and drain.

  3. Place the rhubarb in a large saucepan and toss with the sugar. Cook the rhubarb over moderate heat for 5 minutes, or until the rhubarb begins to wilt but still is slightly crisp.

  4. Drain the grated turnips in a colander or strainer, pressing out as much liquid as possible. Fold the turnips into the rhubarb and cook until heated through. Serve immediately.
