Delicious and attractive dish. I did not have apricots and used dried nectarines, and subbed honey for the brown sugar. It was amazingly good. I think that dried peaches or pears would also work well - they share that slight acidity that apricots have. I am looking forward to making this again. Update: I had leftovers and panfried them with my bacon and eggs this morning. The rutabagas caremelized and were even better than in the original recipe!

Very much appreciated dish at our Thanksgiving dinner. Cut butter and brown sugar down to 1 tbsp each, kept dried apricots at 12, and had about 6 cups rutabaga. Delectable taste, easy to make. Thanks for a keeper!
