Took my a while to work out what rutabagas were - we call them swedes down this part of the world. We all adore swedes/rutabagas but never had them with cinnamon. Great combination. Made for ZWT 6

Made as written for ZWT6 & this recipe was headed for 5* from the moment I saw it since a variation of this rutabaga dish is a pers fave of my DH. This recipe adds carrot which I esp liked. I used a combo of both cinnamon + nutmeg along w/the optional butter to top this tasty puree. This is an easy-fix I made easier by using my magic-bullet. My camera failed me in my haste, but DH made me promise to repeat this dish w/a pic for you .. high praise from him, so thx for posting this for him/us. :-)
