A Cool Glass of Turnip Juice
Shelbyville Old Man: And with that, a mighty cheer went up from the heroes of Shelbyville. They had banished the awful lemon tree forever, because it was haunted. Now let’s all celebrate with a cool glass of turnip juice.

I used a juicer to make A Cool Glass of Turnip Juice since I’m not currently strong enough to crush a turnip one handed. I’m not really sure if I’m strong enough to do that with a lemon to make lemonade either actually. Maybe I need more iron in my diet. Do turnips contain iron? It would appear they do not. But, perhaps if I drink enough turnip juice I will one day be able to juice a turnip one handed purely because of how many turnips I originally drank. Does that make sense?
Turnips are not a food I eat frequently. That is mostly because I prefer my root vegetables deep fried and also in potato form. So I wasn’t super enthused about drinking a liquefied version of a vegetable I never eat. But at the same time, I do have the juicer…
Place 2 to 3 turnips into a juicer. Let the juicer do it’s magic and drink immediately before the contents start to separate.
I was pleasantly surprised by how good the turnip juice actually tasted. As in, I drank the entire glass of this turnip juice. Do I plan on waking up to a cool glass of turnip juice every morning because I live in fear ofa haunted lemon tree? No. But still, turnip juice is not half bad!
