Special Scottish Swede

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Millereg

This is a more modern Scottish recipe. Makes a nice change from mashed potatoes and is a great accompaniment to most beef, pork, or lamb dishes

This was my first time making rutabagas. Turns out I love them. I misread the recipe and didn't chop the apples as finely as I should, they were a bit chunky, but it didn't matter because this tasted great!
