There are certain elements of the Turkish culinary repertoire with which an outsider will have a love–hate relationship—lamb testicles, sheep’s head soup, fried pickles, boza beer, rakı, and şalgam —the earthy refreshment in this recipe. I love şalgam —especially washed down with rakı, which is a pairing perfected in the Mediterranean town of Adana.
