    NOTES Turnips are in season in the United States in the spring and in the fall so keep your eyes open for them. I use dried herbs since they do much better when roasting. Reserve fresh herbs for sprinkling on after roasting. Most turnips need to be peeled prior to cooking as they have thick skins with a bit of after taste. Use a vegetable peeler just like do with potatoes and carrots. Baby turnips do not need to be peeled. Parchment paper helps to brown the turnips evenly and makes for very easy cleanup. To reheat spread over a parchment covered baking sheet and place in the oven at 375 degrees for about 10-15 minutes. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
