Turnip and Rutabaga

These 2 root vegetables are closely related and are used interchangeably. Rutabagas are grown more extensively in Canada, Great Britain, and northern Europe than in the U.S. Turnips in general have white flesh and contain some vitamin C, while rutabagas, because of their yellow color, provide some vitamin A. Both have a mild sweet taste, which is at its best when the vegetables are young and are eaten raw. Turnip greens are high in vitamins A, B, and C. They can be eaten raw or cooked.
