Slice the turnips into slices about 1/8 of an inch thick and place them on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the slices with salt and allow them to stand for 2 hours. After 2 hours, rinse and drain the slices and set them aside. In a saucepan, combine the marinade ingredients and bring the mixture to a boil. Add the turnips and toss them with the marinade. Continue cooking until the liquid comes to a boil. Allow the turnips and the liquid to cool, then transfer the slices and marinade to a glass jar. Cover the jar and refrigerate up to 12 hours, shaking the jar occasionally, to allow the flavors to blend. Serve garnished with chives and sesame seeds.

Serves 3 to 4.
