  1. Rutabaga? Right click, search google. Ah turnip, or neeps as they say in the north of England. We don’t eat turnip in Australia. Not sure why.

    1. Rutabagas look like turnips, only they’re a bit larger and have a yellow complexion, also they have a sweeter taste. If not available in Australia use some other root vegetable.
