Single purple and white rutabega on a wood background

Veggie Type: Root, cruciferous 

Season: Harvested in the fall but sold most of the year 

Peak months: August-November

Uses: Rutabagas most resembles a root vegetable, but they’re actually a cross between a wild cabbage and turnip.  Typically, they’re sweet and mild but have a little bit of a sharp flavor like a turnip. How sweet or zesty they are  depends on their growing conditions. Their unique flavor shines when either roasted or steamed, mashed, and topped with butter, salt, and pepper.
