1/2 ham hock
boiling water

Directions:
Directions:
Place ham hock in boiling water and boil until it is tender and has created a broth. While the ham hock is boiling, peel the rutabagas. This will take quite a while, because rutabagas are not easy to peel. Use a cutting board to half and then quarter the rutabagas. this will also take a while, because rutabagas are not easy to cut up. After quartering, dice the rutabagas, this will reduce the cooking time. When the hamhock broth is ready, place the diced rutabagas into the broth. Boil until the rutabagas are tender enough to easily mash with a fork. Pour into a colander and drain broth off. Use a potato masher and mash the boiled rutabagas as you would do if preparing mashed potatoes. Add salt and sugar to taste. Serve with some form of greens and old timey corn bread or corn muffins.
