It’s the first day of autumn in the Northern hemisphere, and the the first day of spring in the Southern hemisphere, including Australia.
Quite a significant day for many people.
My best wishes to you all for this new season!
Love, good health and prosperity!
Here’s a picture of parsnips, which I took recently in a supermarket.
This is a root rich in flavour, which can be added to a soup, enhancing its taste. I also baked it in the oven, and I liked it.
In Australia, parsnip is in demand, it is sold everywhere: in supermarkets, fruit and vegetable shops, etc.
This is a photo of turnips I made recently in a supermarket.
It is a useful vegetable, reminiscent of radish. It can be eaten separately or added to a salad. I like it.
When I was growing up, turnips were used as a purely fodder crop for livestock. But scientists created some varieties that humans can use directly for their own food with success. In Australia, turnips are sold in many supermarkets. People also often put them in soup, along with swedes and parsnips.
By the way, relatively recently, in March-April, during my Spanish trip, I ate a similar, delicious dish – patatas bravas – in Barcelona and Andalusian cities (south of the country). However, the potatoes were not whole, but cut into pieces.
Swede, or rutabaga (from an old Swedish dialectal word).
This photo was taken by me a couple of days ago in a supermarket.
It is a very useful vegetable, and is particularly good for soups and salads.
