Shelbyville Old Man: And with that, a mighty cheer went up from the heroes of Shelbyville. They had banished the awful lemon tree forever, because it was haunted. Now let’s all celebrate with a cool glass of turnip juice.
– Lemon of Troy (The Simpsons Season 6 – Episode 24)
I used a juicer for this recipe since I’m not currently strong enough to crush a turnip one handed to make turnip juice. I’m not really sure I’m strong enough to do that with a lemon and make lemonade actually. Maybe I need more iron in my diet. Do turnips contain iron? Perhaps if I drink enough turnip juice I will one day be able to juice a turnip one handed.
Turnips are not a food I eat frequently, since I prefer my root vegetables deep fried and also in potato form. So I wasn’t super enthused about drinking a liquefied version of a vegetable I never eat.
Place 2-3 turnips into a juicer.
I was pleasantly surprised by how good the turnip juice tasted. As in, I drank the entire glass of this juice. Do I plan on waking up to a cool glass of turnip juice every morning because I fear a haunted lemon tree? No, but still turnip juice is not half bad!
