Glazed Rutabaga & Apricots

I really like these a lot. Maybe this summer I can get a food dryer; then the dried apricots can be local too.

4 servings
45 minutes - 15 minutes prep time

Glazed Rutabaga and Apricots
4 cups peeled, diced rutabaga
12 dried apricots
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons Sucanat or dark brown sugar

Peel and dice the rutabaga, being careful to keep the cubes as even in size as possible. Put them in a pot with water to just cover, and cook them until just tender.

Meanwhile, cut the apricots into quarters. When the rutabaga is just done, throw the apricots into the pot for one minute to plump them up a little.

Drain the rutabaga and apricots. Put the butter and sugar into the pan and add the rutabaga back in. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently until the rutabaga and apricots are glazed; about 3 or 4 minutes.
