    Didn't use rutabagas or sweet potatoes or turnips because didn't have them on hand, but just used more regular potatoes, carrots, and, parsnips. Will try with the other vegetables some day. Very good. Slightly sweet from the apple juice which was fine. I would suggest lining your pan with foil for easier cleanup! Thanks!  -  22 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was making this for only 4, so I used only a turnip and a sweet potato. Used white grape juice because I had it on hand; microwave 5 minutes in the juice because I was short on time, then roasted it – WONDERFUL! I wanted to dress it up a little, so I added half an onion (wedged) and several sprigs of rosemary and roasted until onion was done. This really gave it piazza and more variety to the flavor. My father-in-law (who is not at all adventuresome with food) loved it and asked my mother-in-law to get the recipe!  -  19 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I did a Renaissance feast for 50 people and used this recipe. They loved it. I kept it simple, potatoes, sweet potatoes and carrots. I also tossed the veggies in olive oil before roasting them.  -  04 Feb 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
