RUTABAGA TRIO

The Rutabaga Trio was carved from rutabagas bought at the local foodstore.  They were originally a little bigger than a baseball.  For some strange reason it appears that rutabagas will shink at room temperature without spoiling.  The before and after views make for a fun conversation piece.  I’m experimenting with more of these vegetables.  I was surprised to learn that rutabagas are a cross between a cabbage and a turnip.  Note the before and after photos below:

    Rutabagas are one of my favorite foods. But how can I eat them anymore knowing they are now people!!!

    Don’t you think that rutabagas are so lucky to be both vegetables and people? I know a lot of people that I think are vegetables!
