Another simple, good presentation for an under-appreciated vegetable.

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!
