I asked someone in Finland how they use rutabagas (called Swedes here - or Swedish turnip) and she wrote this, which is the way we fix it here.

When I make ROTMOS I mash potatoes with the kålrot

3/4 liter potatoes
1/2 kg kålrot (kålrot=swedish turnips my dictionary says)
water, salt
1-1½ deciliter milk
hint of white pepper and butter

Peel the kålrot, cut to pieces and cook in salt water for 20 minutes. Peel the potatoes and put them in the boiling water with the kålrot. When they are ready mash them and add salt and butter and hot milk.

Basically it's mashed potatoes combined with mashed rutabagas, which add specks of yellow to the potatoes, and quite delicious.

Rotmos sounds delicious! I'll try that for Christmas. Have you ever heard of Rupsua/Krupsua? I don't know the correct spelling, but my grandmother used to make it. It had a lot of eggs in it and it would blow up really big in the oven and then settle down to a custard like pie.
