Rutabaga And Apple

Often mistaken for turnips and outshined by the season’s much sexier squash and cooking greens, the stalwart, purple-topped rutabaga – which is harvested from September through March – is easy to grow, easy to store and even easier to take for granted. No doubt you’ve seen it bobbing in Grandma’s beef stew and chopped with other root veggies in traditional pot roasts, but give it a chance and you’ll learn that this cabbage-turnip hybrid has much more to offer.
