RECIPE BACKSTORY
One of my family's favorite from my grandmother who came from Poland. This is a dish I used to make only at Thanksgiving. I loved it so much that I began making a ton of it and freezing the rest in serving sizes! If you don't like turnip/rutabaga, try it this way. Just remember, cook each veggie *SEPARATELY* and combine just before serving.
