IN SEASON - November
The rutabaga, swede (from Swedish turnip), or yellow turnip (Brassica napobrassica) is a root vegetable that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip.
Store in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to three weeks.
Prepare by using a pairing knife or vegetable peeler to remove the outer layer. Cut off very bottom so that you will have a flat surface for chopping. Use large chef's knife to halve then quarter your rutabaga. Boiling or mashing makes a great side dish!
