My wife is from New York City and taught me to add cubed rutabaga to beef stew. The rutabaga gives the stew a wonderful extra fragrance and flavor. With a bit of tabasco and Worcestershire sauce, it takes beef stew to a different level of enjoyment. We've never tried growing them here in North Texas, but I'll bet they would do well here as a winter crop in well-prepared soil, since chard and cabbages thrive here in cold weather.

Our Nov. is suppose to be rather warm so I may be getting just a few seeds and see how they do as a winter crop here in central MO.
