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

  1. In a large pot, bring water, allspice, peppercorns, and salt to a boil.
  2. Peel and finely chop the rutabagas and carrots. Add to the pot.
  3. Reduce temp to a low boil and cook for 15 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, peel and finely chop the potatoes.
  5. After the 15 minutes is up, add the potatoes and cook an additional 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender.
