I had 2 rutabagas in last week's CSA box and knew I did not like them mashed, so was delighted to find this recipe. It was excellent and was pretty to look at too. I added some diced pumpkin (I had a bit left from my last one of the season) and used a small can of mango juice instead of apple (what I had on hand), and a few raisins (because I like them), and topped with roasted pumpkin seeds. I ate most of it in 1 sitting and shared some with coworkers. An excellent winter dish. Thank you thank you!

First, I must admit the only reason I made this is because I had a can of diced rutabagas in the pantry that I didn't know what to do with! I'm so glad I found this recipe to use them in because it is absolutely wonderful. The tang from the cranberries mixed with the sweetness of the apples & rutabaga makes this just great. This would be a wonderful side to pork, chicken, ham or turkey. For me it was a great snack dessert. I did omit the butter, just to save fat and calories. Now I'll have to buy more rutabaga just so I can make this. Thank you Jenny, this is wonderful.

Very good, but I actually switched this up quite a bit. I used golden delicious apples, substituted grape juice for the apple juice and added 2 packets of splenda instread of the brown sugar. Used dried cranberries and soaked them in red wine for an hour. Also cut up 6 dried apricots and soaked them with the cranberries. Then topped with walnuts. I will make this again. Hubby couldn't believe it wasn't simply baked apples!

Just delicious! I used a pink lady apple, DH actually requested more apple. We loved the sweetness, and tart of the cranberries. Perfect recipe Jenny!

We enjoyed this for a change but is was a bit too sweet for us even having cut the sugar in half. It was a nice combination of fruits and they enhanced the rutabaga but next time I think I would leave the sugar out and depend on the sugar from the fruits, thanks for sharing.
