Did you know?

Most people are not aware of the fact that aside from improving the digestive system, the immune system, and metabolic function, rutabaga also has an interesting background story.

This root vegetable is native to Scandinavia and Russia and was first widely introduced to England in the 19th century. However, it was also found in North America around the same time, most likely due to Scandinavian or Scottish immigration to Canada, with the root vegetable slowly spreading south to all of North America in a matter of years.

Additionally, before pumpkins became readily available in Europe in the 1980s, rutabaga was traditionally carved and left on doorsteps on Halloween eve.
