Quick-pickled turnips

  • 250g of baby turnips, or regular turnips
  • 1 tbsp of salt
  • 125ml of water
  • 125ml of rice wine vinegar
  • 100g of caster sugar


To begin, wash the turnips. If using baby turnips halve them, cutting any that are larger than a walnut into quarters. If using large turnips, peel them and cut them into misshapen pieces, roughly the size of an olive/hazelnut. You want to be able to eat a piece easily whilst standing up, having a drink
Massage the salt into the turnips and leave to stand for an hour in a colander
Dissolve the sugar in the water and vinegar. Lightly brush any excess salt from the turnips, place in a container and pour the sugar solution over the top. Leave for at least an hour before serving
