How to Select
Pick a rutabaga that’s heavy for its size and relatively free of blemishes. Due to the wax coating, it’s hard to pick one that’s brightly hued, but the brighter colour may indicate its freshness. Avoid any soft spots or cracks in the skin.
How to Store
Store rutabaga loosely in a plastic bag in the fridge for up to three weeks. They also can last on the counter for about a week, but it’s better to store them in the fridge.
