I got this recipe from the Heritage Quilters. Boy was I surprised to find out this delicious soup had turnips as one of the main ingredients. I am one of the first people to turn my nose up at turnips but this soup will surprise you.

Let's start by saying that I don't like turnips, but I had some that needed to be used, so I tried this soup recipe. It was surprisingly good, rather like a light potato soup. I would recommend this to anyone who likes turnips. It's also very easy.
