A delicious southern dish! Rutabaga is a sweet root vegetable that is often seen on the menus of home-style cooking restaurants. It is of the turnip family. This vegetable goes well as a side dish with pork. Great use for leftover ham. Some people prefer it smashed, but we like it in small cubes. Tired of the same side dishes??? Try this one.....you'll love it!!!
- Note: The ham will provide enough saltiness as it cooks.
- Peel rutabaga and cut into small cubes. Bring water to a boil Place rutabaga cubes and ham pieces in a large saucepan.
- Cover and simmer on low heat for approximately 1 1/2 hours. Do not let water boil out completely -- keep a watchful eye. If preferred, mash with a fork before serving.
