What exactly is it? Rabbit says it on Winnie the Pooh and I googled images. It looks like a white beet. What does it taste like? And where would you buy one?

To be honest, I've never even heard of it. :?

I think its a root plant. It looks kinda like an orangish turnip root. Most people boil them. They make the whole house smell like farts, and they taste the same way. Southern folks eat them a lot.

I've only ever had one in those meals they make for old people and it was pretty bland. I think cooking them fresh they are supposed to pretty versatile, though... Kinda like a carrot?

I use them in a Moroccan dish that I make it pretty much taste like a turnip and has a somewhat bitter taste.

To those that have actually cooked with it, where do you buy it?



And, the farts description is pretty unpleasant, but I still want to try one. Not because it might taste like farts, but because I've watched Winnie the Pooh pretty much my whole life and even now with kids and I want to know what exactly it is he was growing in his garden. I feel kinda silly for saying that- but yeah.

They're not bad if you put hot pepper sauce on them, but then you're really only tasting the pepper sauce. lol. Any grocery store carries them, or here they do. I don't know if they're seasonal or not. Sometimes they're in the store and sometimes not, just depends on how they're selling I guess.

I've never seen one. Maybe it's a southern thing?

I actually love rhudabaga. I usually boil mine in the same water I cook my cottage rolls in-the salty water gives it great flavor. It does stink but so does cabbage and cauliflower.

I eat rutabaga. It's good but I only really use it in one thing, an Arabic food called torshi which is just pickled vegetables (cauliflower, cucumbers, rutabaga, garlic, for green turshi or add beets & cabbage for red turshi).

Some think it's unpleasant, some think it's good... That makes it a little less scary to try!



I guess we'll find out for ourselves this fall, if I can find some.
