Rutabaga Joan


This rutabaga is renowned for its flavour and texture, smooth and easy to cook with.  It goes well in casseroles, soups and as a side dish, mashed!  The origins of this root vegetable are not quite clear.  It seems that is may be a natural hybrid between the wild cabbage and the wild turnip in Northern Europe.  It likes cold climates so the running theory is that it is from Sweden or the Scandinavian regions.
