a mashed rutabaga and carrot dish
Or mashed with parsnips. I add it to soups, and beef stews. But, I think just cooked and mashed on it's own is my favourite.

Heard of rutabaga but have no clue what it is or what it tastes like. Is it a root vegetable or what, what dos it taste like? Oh and I do not like parsnips maybe it's an acquired taste.

If memory serves me correctly, this root veggie was developed in Germany. I do know it's a cross between a turnip and cabbage. And I do know that I love 'em.

We really like cooked rutabagas, but I'm never sure just what to serve with them.

QSis, we always called that a turnip too. Wonder if it's a regional thing although I do remember my mother saying something about it not really being a turnip.

Seems like I was wrong about the rutababaga's origin. It wasn't developed in Germany, but is a cross between a turnip and a cabbage. The following site has extensive info about this wonderful root veggie, along with some recipe links. Swede (root vegetable) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Why are rutabagas you find in the grocery store these days usually dipped in wax?

I don't remember them being waxed when I was a kid ... ok - that might have been 3 days after dirt was created ...
