Re: swede - what to do with it

In Sweden it's called a kålrot.
Fantastic with mash potato, next to a Haggis. Haggis, Tatties and Neeps. Burns night sorted!
Or Jamie’s Mussel dish, from Jamie’s Great Britain, I think I have seen a photo of this, when I logged in. Haggis is really cool, we had one last night. It had been many years since the last one, another childhood meal I now love. At £2 it’s going to become a regular fixture.

Re: swede - what to do with it

If you ever come across a reference to "haggis, neeps and tatties", "neep" means "swede".

I don't like them much, personally, but I'm told mashing them with butter and pepper is a good plan.

Re: swede - what to do with it

Mada! I've learnt something new today - I always thought a swede was a swede & a turnip a turnip - but they are the same vegetable!  oops

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutabaga 
(Kye! And, the swede is called rutabaga, too - wow, so many names!!! wink )

I once peeled a swede at my MIL's house & we boiled it/then mashed it like potatoes yummy - like other forumers have said, Mada! 

On the farm here my hubby has planted about 5 padddocks of turnips/swedes for a summer-crop for the cows to munch-on...they will begin grazing them in the next week or two, as, it's getting quite dry over here in N.Z. ...we badly need some rain!  crossed

P.S. Thanks, HippyTea, I always wondered what "neeps" were! smile

Re: swede - what to do with it

a swede is a swede and a turnip is a turnip..    two different veg although here at least they used to called swede/rutabaga turnip when I a child but then the grocery stores switched to calling them rutabaga ..   

Clear as mud question  question   lol

"....a root vegetable that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip..."

Might explain why it so good with a cabbage side next to it  thumbsup

Re: swede - what to do with it

I find in general they are a little irritating, so I tend to ignore them.
