Although similar in appearance to turnips, organic rutabagas are actually their own distinct and delicious vegetable in the cabbage family (but just to keep things confusing, rutabagas are sometimes called Swedish turnips). Organic rutabagas are larger than turnips, and have a purple-white skin, creamy orange flesh, and sweet flavour when roasted. They can also be sautéed, baked, fried, boiled, mashed, added to soups and stews, eaten raw or grated into salads or coleslaw. Mix organic rutabagas with potatoes, onions, and carrots seasoned with butter and salt for a hearty, warming fall or winter dish.
Ingredients: No chemicals, no GMOs, just organically grown rutabagas.
