Rutabagas are a root crop, similar to turnips but with a nuttier flavor. They have golden flesh and a creamy texture. They’ll keep for a very long time, and are great for warming fall and winter meals. Rutabagas are not pretty to look at, but they’re one of our favorite vegetables. Peeling is optional, depending on your preparation.
