Best ways to store and use Turnips

What is the best storage for turnips? Can you freeze turnips? How long do turnips last in the fridge? We have answers to all of these food-saving questions and storage tips:

Best Storage

The fridge is the best place to store turnips.
Cover turnips with a damp cloth and store in a container.

Ensure your fridge is set between 0 and 4° C.

Can I Freeze It?


Turnips can be frozen in any form: diced and blanched, cooked and mashed, or roasted. Their texture will turn mushy when defrosted, but flavour and nutrients will remain the same. Use in a turnip cream sauce for your pasta!

Fresher For Longer

Once you twist or cut off the tips, rinse the greens in cool water, shake off excess moisture and store in reusable food storage bags in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Use It Up

Use turnips as you would a potato – boiled and mashed or roasted until golden and crispy. Turnip greens are also rich in vitamins. Sauté or braise them the way you would mustard greens, or add them to soups and stews.

Did You Know?

Turnips can be stored for two weeks in the fridge or eight to 10 months in the freezer.
