Turnip juice

Post: # 11942Post woolcraft »

As some of you may know, we have Turkish friends/connections and spend some time there. This is a drink which is available in all the supermarkets around and is served in a separate glass (not mixed) with the local aniseed based drink Raki.

Turnip juice
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Turnip juice is a popular beverage of southern Turkey, originated from Adana. Although its Turkish name şalgam suyu (or shortly, şalgam) does literally mean "turnip juice", it is, in fact, the juice of purple carrot pickles, heavily salted, spiced and flavoured with aromatic turnip (çelem) and fermented in barrels. It is traditionally served cold in large glasses with long slices of pickled carrots, called dene. Hot paprika relish is added just before drinking.

Salgam is often served with raki (alcoholic beverage)â€â€
