1 tsp. salt

6 cloves of garlic, left whole

Hakurei turnips are a small Japanese variety with mild flavor. The rough translation means "graceful companion". The turnip greens are also yummy and I encourage eating the entire plant.
You can store them in a plastic storage bag in your refrigerator about a week.
