Creamy whipped rutabagas - country living holidays

Yield: 8 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 pounds Rutabagas, peeled and diced
1 teaspoon Salt
¼ cup Heavy cream
½ teaspoon Ground ginger
½ teaspoon Ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon Ground allspice
2 tablespoons Butter
2 tablespoons Pine nuts

1. In 3-quart saucepan, place rutabagas and salt; add water to cover.

Cover saucepan and heat to boiling over high heat; reduce heat to low and cook rutabagas until very tender-20 to 30 minutes.

2. Drain rutabagas, reserving cooking liquid. In same saucepan, with potato masher or electric mixer, mash rutabagas until coarsely chopped. Add cream, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice; beat, adding some reserved cooking liquid, if necessary, to make a creamy but not entirely smooth texture. If rutabagas have cooled, heat gently while stirring constantly until hot. Spoon into serving dish.

3. In small skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add pine nuts and saute, until they just start to brown; spoon over whipped rutabagas and serve.
