Rutabaga has many national and regional names. Rutabaga is the common North American term for the plant. In the U.S., the plant is also known as Swedish turnip or yellow turnip.

The term swede (from "Swedish turnip") is used in many Commonwealth Nations, including much of England, Australia, and New Zealand. The name turnip is also used in parts of Northern and Midland England, the West Country (particularly Cornwall), Ireland, the Isle of Man, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. In Wales, according to region, it is variously known as maip, rwden, erfin, swedsen, or swejen in Welsh,[5] and as swede or turnip in English. Rutabagas are in the brassica family and are thought to be an ancient cross between a turnip and a cabbage. They're mildly sweeter than turnips but still retain some bitterness; some people describe the taste as bittersweet.

Rutabagas are a root vegetable and you can use rutabagas as you would use almost any other root vegetable, which means they're a great substitute for mashed potatoes, and also delicious when combined with potatoes and then mashed. Serve these mashed rutabagas as a side dish to any meat or poultry entrée (think roasted chicken), or alongside a ham or pot roast. Salt Pepper and Butter and serve!

Peel 2-3 lbs rutabaga and cut into chunks.
Put the rutabaga in a large saucepan and cover with water. (Or Roast them for a great flavor)
Add a teaspoon of salt and
Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover & simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes or until tender.
Drain & let the rutabaga dry in a colander. (Keep a little of the water to use to to thin out your mash if you think its a little stiff)
Mash the rutabagas with 1 teaspoon salt and some pepper to taste.
Thought I forgot didnt you? Cut up about a 1/4-1/3 cup of butter and mash in there!!!

Of course a little sour cream or Mexican Crema never hurt! YUM!
