Turnip love

These turnips, of the Brassicaceae family, were sweet and spicy delicate bulbs I bought from Isa at the Grant Park Farmers Market. Isa works with Chris under the name Crack in the Sidewalk, growing and foraging some beautiful stuffs. With the bulbs, I made turnip chips, by simply slicing the root thinly and tossing with oil and spices before roasting in the oven. With the green tops however, I intended to make a pesto with hazelnuts, but instead, decided to add them to a massive pot of slow-cooked greens I was simmering. In the dutch oven, I sizzled some garlic, mustard seeds, and red pepper flakes in oil before adding the mass of greens. Once the greens cooked down a bit, I poured a good amount of homemade veggie broth that I found in my freezer earlier that day, and let the mix stew for about an hour. Slowly converting myself to true Southerner one dish at a time.

Concrete Jungle was started in 2009 by Craig Durkin and Aubrey Daniels as a volunteer-run, Atlanta-based organization that helps to distribute unused food to the hungry.  They’ve donated almost 7000lbs of food since their inception!
