Fun use of farm share turnips and beet

Our CSA farm share gave us some huge turnips right at the end of the season. I found two pickled turnip recipes online. As usual, I liked the Eating Well recipe better. The other one called for half a cup of salt for the same number of pints! I used a tablespoon of apple juice concentrate instead of sugar. The neon pink color was stunning, they made a great conversation piece, and it was fun to have people guess what kind of pickle they were eating!

Much less salt than other turnip pickle recipe I found online

I forgot to mention that I

I forgot to mention that I used a whole clove of garlic, slivered, for each pint. I feared it might be overpowering, but it wasn't. I'll use at least that much next time.
