How to Peel a Rutabaga

Peeling a rutabaga can be a challenge. They are very hard and dense. You will need a sharp knife. They cannot be peeled like potatoes, and what you'll be cutting off is about a quarter inch of the outside surface. Just start in one spot and keep at it until all you can see is the golden flesh of the rutabaga. To cut it in chunks, first cut it in half with your largest, heaviest knife, and then work from there.
