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!
