So sweet

Dear Editor,

Have you served turnips at a dinner party? (Not traditional ‘neeps and tatties’ at a family Thanksgiving, but a slightly more formal feast). Have you heard guests exclaim, “These are amazing! What are they?”

This summer I signed up for a weekly basket from Hudson Heartbeet Farm. Biting into their fresh turnips, kale, even braised radishes, the first bite startles with sweetness. I wonder if some of the so-called sugar addictions come about as people seek this natural sweetness that is missing from less-fresh produce.

Thank you to the team doing back-straining work at Hudson Heartbeet Farm, and to all the local farmers bringing to Hudson Farmers’ Market each Thursday such sweetness.

Margaret Waller
