DIRECTIONS

  • Heat water in large pot on stove to boiling.
  • I use a sharp paring knife to remove wax coated skin from the rutabaga.
  • The rutabaga is a very hard vegetable in the raw form, so be careful when cutting it.
  • Use a chef's knife to cut a slice off of one side of the rutabaga.
  • Place the flat side down on the cutting board and cut off small slices.
  • Then chop the slices the other direction forming small cubes.
  • Place rutabaga is boiling water and boil until tender. (about 60 minutes).
  • Remove from heat.
  • When tender, strain water off of rutabaga cubes and place them in a flat bottomed dish. (My Dad puts them back in the pot for this step.).
  • Use a mashing tool and mash them to desired consistency.
  • Add butter, salt & pepper.
  • Mix thoroughly and serve.
  • (One can also make ahead and warm it up in the microwave.).
  • Enjoy!
