veggies take longer than meat in a slow cooker. in my experience swede and turnips are the slowest to cook and if I've only got 5-6 hrs cooking time available I'll "start them off" in a pan/microwave first. Always be careful that veggies are fully immersed in the stock/sauce/gravy too
#2
I normally cook mine on high for around 6 hours and never had a problem
#3
if still in chunks just remove turnip or slice smaller next time? or par boil next time if you want it larger
#4
I slice mine up before cooking. always amazing
#5
Cut them smaller, turnip is a hard veg and takes a lot time to cook normally.
#6
Thanks for your replies, I cut them into quite small chunks, but lesson learnt. I'll par boil them next time, oh well guess it's turnips for dessert then. (I've had to dish up but leave the turnips cooking)

I think I overdid the veg trying to be healthy, onions, parsnips,onions, carrots, turnips and potatoes

I cut mine into quite small chunks... obviously not small enough

I've realised that now, thanks for the advice

Only time I put veg in the slow cooker, the carrots had a sort of film around them. It was very strange. I'm in no hurry to repeat it so I cook them separately.

Never had that, I'm sure some of these vegetables are sent to test us.:D

Raw turnip is slightly harder than raw carrots

Therefore if your carrots are cooked nicely you need to make the turnip slightly smaller in overall size as the carrots.

Just like your tatties need to be slightly bigger than carrots

I'm no "Naked Chef" (once you've looked you can never unsee ;) ) but I've never had to pre cook separately any veg - just lob it all in, turn it on and leave to cook

That was my logic, to lob it all in, and I've never had any problems. It was just this poxy turnip, Ah well, I guess you live and learn, I'll just cut them smaller next time. I'm off to erase the naked chef comment from my mind (_;)
