How do I pick a rutabaga?

Choosing a Rutabaga

When you see a rutabaga in a store, you will see that it has been waxed. That's to seal in the moisture to keep it longer. When choosing one you should see skin that is smooth and tight. The colors can range from yellow to a dark purple. Avoid any with wrinkles as these are older and might not be as tender when cooked. Try to find a heavy/dense root to cook.
