About preserved "turnip" root Edit
In this form it's much more obvious that "turnip" means "daikon radish". The photo specimens were packaged as whole roots but more commonly they are packaged as cut strips. A somewhat shorter, stubbier variety than the long carrot shaped Japanese daikon is used. This is a salt fermented pickle which is soft and flexible but retains quite a bit of crunchiness. Once the vac-pac plastic bag is opened, it should be kept tightly sealed and refrigerated, where it will keep for many months. Ingredients: "Turnip", salt, water.
