In Croatia you can get sour turnip which is made very similar to sauerkraut. In some parts of Croatia (Slavonija) turnip is regarded as pig’s food. Only 250 km to the West (in Zagorje) turnip is regarded as a regular winter stew. We also mix sour turnip with beans. Sour turnip goes excellent with blood sausages and potato (mashed or “restani”) if you don’t cook meat in it.. This is my grandmother’s recipe.
