Yes you can. Wash and peel rutabaga. Cut into cubes and blanch for 2-3 minutes. Pack in freezer-safe containers.

Good luck.

If you want to use them up, Can cut up into small cubes and boil with same quantity potatoes, then mash, tastes great.

When we lived in Upper Michigan, we grew rutabagas commercially. I also supplied the grocery stores with recipes for rutabagas. About freezing: I found the best way to freeze them is cut them up and boil them - drain and cool thoroughly and freeze or mash & then freeze. We enjoyed boiling cubed rutabaga & carrots together until soft, mash with a little butter & then put shredded cheddar cheese on top & bake until the cheese melts. Another good & delicious way to enjoy them is to wash & bake the small ones like a baked potato - serve wtih butter & salt, cheese, sour cream, etc. whatever your taste. Putting a metal kabob skewer through the middle of them speeds up the baking time. Rutabagas get sweet if they are left in the ground until after a good stiff frost or two - it really improves the flavor. Our kids would eat them like an apple. Very nutritious!
