Full Answer

To make mashed rutabagas, peel 2 pounds of rutabagas and cut them into large chunks. Place them in a large pot, and cover them with cold water. Add a few spoonfuls of salt to the pot, bring the water to a boil, and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes or until the rutabagas are tender. Drain off the water, and return the rutabagas to the pot. Use a potato masher to mash the rutabagas, creating a puree. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of butter and a pinch of nutmeg, and stir well before serving.

To make rutabaga oven fries, peel a rutabaga and cut it into spears. Toss it with 1 teaspoon olive oil, 4 minced sprigs of rosemary, 3 minced cloves of garlic and salt to taste. Lay the spears out on a baking sheet, and bake for about 30 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
