Question Canning Turnips

I just canned 7 quarts of turnips for my first time. I used the cold pack method following the pressure canning directions very carefully. All of the jars sealed but the turnips all turned a beige color. Is this normal or should I be concerned?

Question Canning Turnips II

Hello everyone. I am a brand new member of this site. Posted a question about canning turnips several days ago. Have had 30 people look at my question but not one reply. Disappointed at this point but hopeful someone out there will give me an idea or two. Does anyone else can turnips?

Let me re-post my question. Would appreciate any ideas. Thank-you.

First..... Welcome... Hope you have good experience here..

I'm not very canning savvy, but have done a few very rudimentary things..
I recommend using info from the ...Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving...

"Root vegetables" page 393... There instructions there say turnips and parsnips can well... They say rutabagas can be canned with this method, but usually discolor and can get a strong flavor..

The method they describe is "hot pack" method and appropriate processing procedure depending on container size..

The old world east European heritage of the people here make this BIG rutabaga country... They are available fresh a lot of the year here.. I really like them and use quite often..

Use recommended processes and processing information..

Good luck..
