Turnip Lanterns for Thanksgiving


Did you know that some cultures carve turnips? So cute and funny, no matter what you carve into them.  “Turnip lantern, turnip lantern, growing underneath the ground… now you are my turnip lantern shining bright, in the night.”

Here is a funny little tutorial from the Book Garnish Blog. A few of these on a Thanksgiving table would be great – bring the joy!
