About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Turnip Remoulade

My wife's aunt has the most wonderful garden, where she dotes on all sorts of unusual vegetables, some of which might even be considered old-fashioned; kohlrabi, sorrel and turnips for instance.

We had a couple of her turnips in hand and my wife decided to turn them into a remoulade. As she peeled and grated the turnips, I whisked together the mayonnaise. Of course a jar of mayo would make things quick and easy, but homemade acts like a painter's canvas, allowing other flavours to shine through.

Turnips are related to radishes and share a distinctive, slightly hot character, which, as a salad, makes the perfect partner to roast beef and a welcome change from celeriac remoulade, especially with its brilliant white colour.

If you like radishes, you'll love this.

Turnip Remoulade
(serves 4)

2 turnips, peeled and grated
1 cup mayonnaise, include at least 1 heaped teaspoon Dijon mustard
4 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
2 tablespoons salted capers, soaked and drained
salt and fresh ground pepper

In a bowl place the grated turnip, mayonnaise, parsley and capers. Mix well, taste, and add salt and pepper as required.

Hi steve, it was great to finally meet in the flesh.

Thanks for pointing out the dijon mustard addition, I always put some in my homemade mayo, didn't think to mention it. Love it for the taste and love it because it helps stop the dreaded mayo split.

Pig's trotters, stop it mate, Sunday morning and I'm already swooning!

I didn't know what turnip was 'til I saw this blog entry of yours. Then I googled it. Interesting. :)

Hi joanie, thanks for reminding me what a big world it is.

I have a turnip story you may like. My mum was a meat & potatoes person. One time I cooked turnips for her and after she finished eating I asked her how was dinner without potatoes. She protested that she ate the potatoes and was most surprised when I told her they were really turnips!
