At noon we joined John and Jody at Lea's Lunchroom in Lecompte. Lea's is famous for their pies, but my goodness those were the best-knee-slappin' turnips I've ever eaten in my life. And the owner, Ms. Johnson, told me the secret. "I cooked them different today. Mrs. Young told me she used brown sugar in hers so I thought I'd give it a try." She'd gotten the turnips from the Youngs and one of the prize beauties was on display by the exit.
