People are rediscovering the rutabaga
Partly because it's related to kale and shares many of the same health benefits, and partly because of the flavor and versatility.
Sweet mild flavor and crunchy texture make these a kids' favorite for raw dipping. Likewise a hit shredded into slaw or winter salads. Kids (and we) also love them creamed, or mashed half and half with potatoes. Really shines when roasted, alone or with other winter vegetables.
Joan combines outstanding flavor with resistance to clubroot. Oh, and did we say that you can eat those kale-related leaves, too? BOTANICAL NAME: Brassica napobrassica
