It's a large turnip... slightly sweet... cooked it has the constiancy sort of like a potato...
It's a staple in our house... we're having it tonight! with potatos & club steaks...

see this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutabaga

we usually just boil it until tender, mash in a collander to drain the excess water... then add a little honey & cinnamon...
it's even better if you also add one mashed sweet potato to it...

Rutabaga is delicious!! Parsnips and rutabaga cooked together and mashed with a little butter are delicious! It's also very good roasted with some fresh rosemary.

Cooking with beer is very common around my house. I learned early when my Dad made his pancakes with beer. Use it to steam corned beef, as the liquid in slow cooking beef or chicken, as a marinade with garlic for pork chops and of course shoved up a chickens behind on the grill.

Parsnips are also a root, and look like white carrots. They have a very unique flavor..sweeter than carrots.

Rutabagas are also known as wax turnips because they are dipped in parafin so they last forever. They are the size of a softball and have a pale yellow flesh and are slightly sweet. I use them, parsnips and regular turnips in addition to the "normal" root vegies in stews, incredibly tasty and healthy. They can also be prepared like mashed potatoes or fried like ff's much like sweet potato fries. Good stuff.
