Notes about this recipe

    A very good pickle, and a great and tasty way to use turnips if you're not a big turnip fan. I used small standard turnips and they worked well.

    One year I helped all the grandchildren make these for their parents - gorgeous to look at and delightful to eat. They were a major success. If you can find them, use hakurei turnips (a.k.a. Japanese turnip) as their natural sweetness is the perfect foil for the fennel, star anise and red peppercorns. If using standard turnips, peel and taste, using only those that are sweet.
