Purple-tinged turnip roots appear at roadside stands and farmers’ markets in the Lowcountry with the first cool weather in October. Buy small to medium turnips with bright greens still attached. Pare the turnips, being sure to cut away any tough or woody areas. Quarter small turnips; cut larger ones into 1-inch chunks. Wash the greens.
