"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

My Grandma Mary Marshall taught me to love root vegetables!! She grew some in her garden and she taught me to prepare them. I find that many people don't like or have not been introduced to root vegetables.
Rutabagas: (yellow, mild radish taste, prepare like mashed potatoes) peel waxy skin off and cut up in small pieces. Boil until soft and mash with plenty of butter, salt, pepper, and a small dash of milk. Or, you can dice and add to a roast or stew.
Turnips: (white w/purple skin) peel, dice, and boil until soft. Can be mashed or add to a roast or stew.
Parsnips: Peel, slice in strips, and boil until soft. Fry in butter until brown.
Greens: Clean and cut up leaves of a bunch of (they come in bunches in the produce section) collard greens, turnip greens, and kale greens into generous sized pieces (they will cook down). Add to a large cooking pot with an inch or so of water or chicken broth at the bottom. Add ham hocks or lb. of bacon to cook down with the greens. Cook until the leaves are very tender and falling apart. They will reduce greatly and the smell maybe overpowering for the kitchen so ventilate well. Remove meat when done and cool. I like to freeze family portion sizes for later meals. Salt and pepper to taste.
