My kitchen garden has given me a generous crop of cauliflowers and carrots. So I bought a few turnips, opened the box of dates kept in the fridge and made a sweet and sour pickle of them. Ah bliss! It is a common pickle made by Punjabi households. I am sure everyone has a recipe of it. My mother always added dates. She loved dates and would sneak them into some recipes with surprisingly pleasant results. This is one such recipe.
