Pickled Turnips

Recipe by BigFatMomma

I didn't find these on here, and they were such a big part of my childhood, that I thought I should share. I don't think that we ever let a jar of these get all the way done, since they taste so good when they're still crunchy. Cooking time is pickling time.

Thanks for posting your recipe. I enjoyed these turnips very much and they are so easy to prepare. I will be making this recipe for years to come. By the way, I have been rinsing the pickles in clean water then draining before eating. Without the rinse they were too salty for my taste but just perfect rinsed. Thanks again.
