Rutabaga

Brassica napus

Rutabagas aren't just for your Grandpa. A cross between a cabbage and a turnip, rutabaga produces large yellow roots with a sweet, nutty flavor. They are simply delicious boiled and mashed in with potatoes, or even on their own -- something fancy restaurants are doing. Or add them to soups (especially chicken-broth based soups) where they'll add a rich, sweet note. When the roots are young, slice them raw and serve with a dip.

The plant grows best in cool conditions. In warm-summer regions, grow it as a fall crop.
