Peel and sliced rutabagas into long batons or French Fries. Soak them in water for 30 minutes, then drain and towel-dry. Toss with vegetable oil to coat lightly and a few pinches of salt. Spread them on a sheet pan and bake at 400, turning occasionally until golden and tender, 30-40 minutes. When done, toss them with a little finely minced rosemary, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper.
