1 large Rutabaga, peeled and cut into 1” cubes
1 mild to sweet apple, peeled, cored, and quartered
3 Tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon light oil
2 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
Quarter cup milk
Heat one tablespoon butter and the oil in a large skillet and add onion. Continue to sauté over medium heat until the onions brown. Add salt and set aside covered.
Add rutabaga and salt to a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil and reduce heat, simmering for 15 minutes. Add apple and continue simmering for 10-15 minute or until both are soft. Drain and return to the saucepan with 2 tablespoons butter and mash well. Stir in milk and serve topped with onions.
Delicious paired with the Celeriac Salad.
Preheat oven to 400. Peel rutabagas and slice into fries a quarter to a half and inch thick. Soak in water for 30 minutes, drain and towel dry Toss in vegetable or peanut oil to coat lightly along with a few pinches of salt. Spread them out on a sheet pan without the fries touching. Bake until golden and tender, turning occasionally. Toss them with a bit more salt and fresh pepper and enjoy.
1 rutabaga, peeled and cubed into half inch pieces
Salt and fresh pepper
3 tablespoons butter or sunflower oil (more for the big honker rutabagas)
1 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 tablespoon thyme
2 tablespoons chopped chives
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
about a half cup bread crumbs browned in butter or oil
Boil the rutabagas until beginning to soften but not soft, about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When the butter foams, add the rutabaga and stir until brown. Toss with herbs and garlic. Add salt and pepper to taste. Top with bread crumbs.
This is a great preparation for turnips too!
Peel the squash (optional), cut off the ends and halve. Cut into slices about a third of an inch thick. Heat the oil in a wide skillet and add the squash, frying over medium heat until beginning to brown (7-8 minutes). Turn and cook on the second side until tender. Add salt, pepper, parsley and cumin and toss to coat.
