Honey Glazed Rutabaga
Makes 4 Servings
1 medium to large rutabaga
2 Tbsp butter, or to taste (more if the rutabaga is very large)
2 Tbsp honey, or to taste (more if the rutabaga is very large)
Pinch of ground ginger, optional
Peel and cut the rutabaga into small cubes. Boil the rutabaga in salted water for 15 minutes, or until fork tender. Drain and return the cooked cubes to the same pan. Add butter, honey, a pinch of salt, and a pinch of ground ginger (if desired), and stir the mixture to coat the rutabaga. Place the pan over medium heat and continue stirring/tossing the rutabaga until any remaining water is evaporated, the glaze turns clear, and the rutabaga cubes begin to brown, about 5 to 7 minutes, depending on the size of your pan. Serve and enjoy!
Tip: Preparing this in a skillet will help in the glazing step, allowing more of the rutabaga to glaze/brown at the same time, versus doing it in a saucepan.
