When I came to Ladakh I discovered that fresh and raw, they are crunchy and sweet as a carrot. Cooked, I like them much better than cooked carrots, light and appealing. A tradition here where I live, as well as in neighboring Kashmir where they do it even better, is to cook meat in the pressure cooker with turnips. It's delicious!

I only target the beetles, because there are lady bugs and lighting bugs all over the place that do no harm. I saw a hand sprinkler at tsc. It was like $17, to much for me.

It is more of a survey than instructional or a deep look at each technique. It would be great to share with those whom are new to the subject. It is also visually pleasing enough to keep the information fresh for anyone whom has studied this before.
$10 bucks was worth it to me to support this educational effort. If you get a chance, please give it a watch and introduce someone new to the ideas and techniques.
