who knew?

This morning, have cut back the greens on the Broccoli Rabe, saw the root!  Looks just like a turnip.  Guess what?  They ARE!  part and parcel of the same family. when you look up turnip there is a reference to being called Rapini, which is also another name for Broccoli Rabe (or Raab, or Rapa, or Rapini).  Now, how to sneak those turnips onto the dinner plate . . . .
