you ever had a real rutabaga? Not the kind you buy that is as hard
as a rock and has a thick coating of wax all over it. A real, organic,
sweet tasting, soft, delicious rutabaga? The first time I ate an organic
one is truly the first time I ever really ate a rutabaga. Originally
called a swede, (from its origin), rutabaga is truly a perfect
winter hard root vegetable. They should be yellowish in color with
a purple top, similar to a turnip. Try and find them smaller is size,
they are sweeter tasting.
in the cabbage family, which is known for their anticarcinogenic properties,
rutabaga are exceptionally high in these nutrients. Very good for
general detoxification, they also can dissolve phlegm and strengthen
the blood. Also known for strengthening digestion, detoxifying the
liver, and nurturing the spleen, pancreas and stomach. When using
rutabaga in a recipe remember to cut them smaller than your other
vegetables because they tend to be harder and take longer to cook.
