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.
