    what's the difference between a turnip and a rutabaga?

    I also like whichever is the yellow one mashed and served with mashed potatoes. YUM.

    White vegetables are yummy diced, boiled in salt water, drained and then mixed in a (sp?) bechamel cheese sauce.

    Can't say I've ever intentionally or knowingly eaten a turnip :roll: Keep the ideas coming...maybe I'll try one (just so I don't tell family what it is).

    The recipes b.zang posted look really good!!! I may have to try one of them for our church thanksgiving potluck next week. ;) I usually keep it simple....steam or boil turnip and carrots in a small amt of water..., drain, then mash with a little butter, cream, and br.sugar.

    The difference between turnip and rutabaga? Turnip is the one with the purple top, rutabaga is yellow. Both are good. :D

    Hey gals, your recipes and ideas are great and some are funny too, keep them coming.

    Think I should have the hostess clarify which veggie she means. I call the yellow flesh one turnip when it think it really is a rutabaga, don't think I've ever eaten a white turnip. May in Jersey

    My Swedish grandmother used to make "Rootmoose"

    Half white potatoes and half turnip, whipped up with butter, hot milk and

    s & p. Exactly like regular mashed potatoes plus the mashed turnip.

    Don't know if we all liked it because it was good or because we loved

    saying "Please pass the Rootmoose!" We always have it for

    Thanksgiving.

    I had turnips once at a friend's house when I was about 14. The horror is still with me 50 years later!!
