Rutabaga, or swede, as the British call it, is a 4″-6″ long root vegetable with a sweet, mellow flavor. Mash just like potatoes, add chunks to soups and stews, or bake in savory or sweet casseroles. Even the tops are edible and make tasty sautéed greens. Rutabagas develop the best flavor when harvested during cool weather, making an ideal fall crop in most places. A great storage crop.
