I just had this for dinner today, made by Cornell University Dining. It was soo good, that I had to ask for the recipe. It turns out to be the same as this one. The only difference is that there is only 1 tbsp of butter and 1/3 cup of chives and the servings is listed as 8. It was so refreshing and a wonderful break to writing an essay on global food security.

I love rutabagas and this recipe is very easy to do. There was too much honey for my taste. Next time I'll reduce it by half. I used the zest of one lemon. I reduced the butter a little bit. And now I saw that I forgot to add the fresh chives and I bought it today specially for this recipe :( I have leftovers, and I'll try to add chives to it. Thanks Wi Cheesehead :) Made for Newest Zaar tag.
