Very Good 4.5/5
(2 ratings)

This is a dish that my mother in law used to make years ago when I was first married. I think it's an old English recipe and it was one of her family's traditional Thanksgiving recipes. It's very simple and very good! The first time I tried to make it, she told that it used carrots and turnips, so I made it with carrots and turnips. YUCK!!! It turned out that turnip is the old New England name for a RUTABAGA. Once I made it with rutabagas it was delicious -- I have never had a Thanksgiving without this recipe for the past 32 years. It's amazingly simple and if you've never had it you won't believe how amazingly delicious it is! It goes so well with turkey and stuffing!!

Vegetables may be substitued or eliminated on your taste. Do not overcook vegetables you want them a little crisp! Ginger and Garlic are added for additional flavor, either or both may be omitted.
