Rutabaga

Don’t be scared of this ugly veggie! This ugly duckling is often compared to a turnip, but much sweeter.

Storage
Store in plastic bags in the fridge where they won’t dry out. Add a few drops of water in the bag. They keep for months, much to my chagrin delight.

Substitutions
turnips

Cooking Tips
Mash & blend with butter & cream. Peel first!
