    Chef Jim Davis for Harris Teeter shows you how to cut turnpis.

    Jim Davis: Hi I'm Jim Davis for Harris Teeter. I'm going to show you all the ways to cut my favorite vegetable, a turnip.

    We have to cut off the outside peel, just like you do a potato. When I was a kid going up, my mother used to cook carrots and turnips and potatoes together and then mash them. That was one of my favorite dishes as a kid. We cut off the little bit of that part of the top end, we'll cut off the root, and then to cut our chunks to cook with potatoes or any way that you want to fix them, cut first in half, then in half again, and now simply cut in about three inch to half inch slice. And that's how you chunk the turnip.

    We cut off the top and we cut off the bottom, now we want to slice it into about one-fourth inch slices. Just like that, using a sharp knife. And that's how you slice the turnip.
