Halloween vs Hop tu Naa

Having been raised on turnip lanterns I have a preference for them and the sweet smell they exude as the candle cooks them from inside. And it's way harder than the girlie pumpkin version to carve. So, in advance of Friday's trick or treat extravaganza I give you: A Guide to Carving a Turnip. All you need is a turnip, a strong knife, string and wrists strong enough to rip a Yellow Pages directory in half. Dads come into their own at Hop Tu Naa.

I don't know about where you live, but here in San Diego you would have a hard time finding a turnip big enough to carve. They don't grow here like they do on the Isle of Man.
