If you have a favorite way to cook Rutabagas, I'd love to see it.
I love it when people buy things they don't know how to eat--shows a sense of adventrue. Here in SE Ontario, one peels the rhutabaga, cubes it, and cooks it like a potato. When done, drain it, and mash it with boiled carrots, S&P, butter, milk. Serve as a side.

They are also good as a replacement for cabbage in boiled dinner. You can shred them and add them raw to coleslaw or salad. Wash them really well after peeling and salt a little after shredding. I love them in soups. I also like them with a little garam masala.

No idea but it sounds interesting.

Japanese cuisine also includes pickled items, one of which is pickled turnips. A lot of time they are pickled pink like the pink pickled ginger you might have with sushi.

I roast the squash whole in a 400º F oven. Depending on size it's done in an hour or so. Then I let it cool enough to handle, split it down the middle and scoop out the seeds then scoop the flesh into a bowl. I add butter, salt, pepper. Sometimes I add brown sugar and sometimes roasted garlic. Sometimes I add both. You can also add cinnamon and nutmeg.

What is your favorite recipe for Rutabagas? I've never eaten a Rutabaga. In all the pot-luck dinners I've been to, I've never seen them offered. I've never seen them on any menu at any restaurant. I picked one, medium sized Rutabaga up and would like to try it. If you have a favorite way to cook Rutabagas, I'd love to see it. 3 stars 1 reviews
