My mother used to make her Thanksgiving potatoes this way and I think they are the best! Such a wonderful flavor. Thank you for sharing ;-)

My dugther and I had made 48pasties and had rutabagas leftover so I decided to make this recipe,because my DH has been begging me to make mashed rutabaga for years the way his Mother made them. I made it once the way he described and didnt care for them as they were strong tasting and had a consistency I did not care for,kind of dry and a rough mash texture..But I tried this recipe and really liked it..I did however cover the rutabaga with water to cook, they absorb water,so I did not need to add any milk..Had a nice texture..Thank U for this recipe I will be making it again...

Very nice twist on an old favorite. I really like the method of boiling the potatoes in their skins; amazing how they peel off with the entire potato intact. I never heard of that before!

This is a traditional dish from the Orkney Isles in Scotland called "clapshot". Sooo yummy! My Orkney room-mates used to make it all the time when I was a student in Glasgow. Very good stuff.

Yum! I would definitely make this again. My dad and husband claim to not like rutabaga and they loved this dish! Thanks for sharing.
