Pella — 3 pounds rutabagas (about 2 large), peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 pound carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
freshly ground black pepper
1. Place rutabaga and carrots in large stockpot. Fill with cold water to 1-inch above vegetables. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Add 1/4 teaspoon salt, stir and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until vegetables are tender, 45 to 50 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
2. Stir in sour cream and mash vegetables with a potato masher, leaving the texture a bit chunky. Pour in buttermilk and continue to mash until thoroughly mixed. Add remaining salt and pepper; serve immediately.
Makes about 6 cups.
