    I can't picture rutabaga as a tropical vegetable. Even in California,
    they grow more like fat carrots than nice globes from, say, Ontario.

    There is only 4 cups of water *added* to an entire pound of carrots,
    plus a rutabaga, plus a potato, plus (you get the idea). That's got to
    amount to a large volume in sum. Mike said that he ended up with about a
    gallon (eight 8-ounce servings) of soup.

    But the solids are also part of the soup; the volume of the soup
    includes both the solid and the liquid components.

    D'OH! This is what happens when I post hastily.
