    Bergy's Note:

    Rutabagas are an under rated veggie - there are so many ways you can serve them - I love the touch of ginger with fresh orange juice used in this recipe. Not bad for calories either

      Bergy, this takes the lowly turnip to a new high! I used a teaspoon of freshly grated ginger and the butter. I too, loved the orange flavour, perhaps it would be good with a little fresh orange zest?? A good one Bergy!

      Rutabaga is one of my favorite vegetables and is so often overlooked. This is a terrific way to enhance it's mildly sweet flavor! After I mashed and tasted I added an extra splash of Orange Juice and it was just delicious. Even DH who is not that familiar with Rutabaga really enjoyed it and said I could start fixing it more often. Thanks for sharing this keeper!

      Wonderful, fragrant dish!!! This marinade just enhances the slightly orange scent of the rutabaga!!! I chose to steam mine for twenty minutes to cook them. They smelled so good cooking that I didn't mash them all the way because I was too hungry to try them!! This is a great, easy recipe and will definitely make again!! Thanks Bergy!!
