     5 lb                turnips
     4 quarts            oil
     1 cup               rock salt
     1/4 cup             sugar
     2 tablespoons       minced garlic
     1 1/2 teaspoons     paprika
     1 1/2 tablespoons   minced ginger root
     1 1/2 teaspoons     ground red pepper
     1/2 teaspoon        monosodium glutamate
     1 tablespoon        sugar

Pare and cut turnips crosswise into thirds, then lengthwise into quarters. Combine water, rock salt and 1/4 cup sugar in a large bowl. Put turnips into water and place a weighted plate on top to keep them submerged. Soak for 6 hours. Rinse turnips 5 times in cold water. Drain and put into jars. Combine remaining ingredients and pour over turnips. Let stand at room temperature for 2 days, then refrigerate. Makes 2 quarts.
