10. Whipped Rutabaga Mash with Quick Tomato Confit

Nothing describes a rutabaga better. I think I was 25 before I tasted one, the name alone sounded strange enough for me to write off as “weird”, and looks… well, they won’t win a beauty contest. Rutabaga was something I’d only heard my grandmother speak of. Growing up on a farm, they’d eat them in soups or in a creamy gratin, along with turnips and squash all winter long.
