"Indian Turnip"

Just some helpful advice. If a so-called friend asks if you would like to eat an indian turnip or anything else used to describe a small onion shaped root. Do not eat. I know Im breaking tradition but after what I had to deal with last weekend, I wouldnt even have one of my enemies eat that thing.

A bear guide in New Brunswick pulled the old Indian radish trick on me. They were laughing their heads off!

Re: "Indian Turnip"

I never heard of that but I am curious of what they said to you to get you to eat something that you had no clue what it was.

Re: "Indian Turnip"

It really didnt take much for me to eat it at all. The person that actually handed me the "turnip" was my buddies 70 some year old father. I peeled off the outer layer of skin and dirt and smelled it. It just smelled like dirt and I asked him if he wanted a piece. He quickly said no, I dont like it. I asked him what it tasted like because I said it smelled like dirt and he said yeah, dirt.

Well, I popped the whole thing in my mouth and chewed it up. Their eyes got huge (They both only took a very small bite of the root when they were tricked) I found out a few seconds later when it felt like I was chewing on needles why he didnt want any. My mouth hurt for 2 days afterwards. Now they all joke and say I'll never trust that old man again.

Wow! I hope you didn't swallow any. I'm glad you posted that because I never heard of it and now I'll know better if asked to try it.
