The world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons has a variety of food that players can acquire and sell for large amounts of Bells. Turnips have isn’t o the top of the food chain when it comes to the valuable pieces of food that players can acquire to increase their wealth. However, the valuable nature of this vegetable does not mean that it is immune from being spoiled.

How To Use Rotten Turnips

Players can leave the rotten food on the ground and use it to attract flies and ants. Using the rotten food is a great way to encounter and catch flies and ants for your bug list or any other kind of things you may need these critters for in the popular game. All that you need to do is drop the spoiled turnips on the ground and wait. Flies and ants will eventually come towards the rotten food to get a meal, and this will be your opportunity to catch the bugs for your collection. The amount of flies and ants that will show up is random, so we suggest waiting a decent amount of time to see just how many of these bugs will come up to your rotten food before going to catch them. 

Turnips are easily the most valuable piece of food in Animal Crossing: New Horizons. There is no reason for players not to try and get as much use out of them as possible even when they are spoiled and rotten beyond what is acceptable to seel for a profit. 

Turnips can even be of great value to you once they have spoiled, so do not be too hasty in throwing out these rotten vegetables.
