Remarks

If you have turnips with nice leaves, don't keep them too long because the leaves droop quickly .

If you don't have turnips with leaves, you can use spinach instead..

[translator's note: turnip (navet in French) is the French term for a complete flop, e.g. a really bad film. The name is a joke!].
