A member of the brassica family, swedes have golden flesh and are not to be confused with a turnip (which is smaller and has white flesh). Beautiful when boiled and mashed with butter and seasoning (also great mashed together with carrots), in soups, stews, casseroles or parboiled and roasted with honey and olive oil, mmnnn!!
If they come with leaves, remove and cook them as you would cabbage.
Wash and peel before eating.
* Like us, not all fruit or vegetables are perfectly formed and are not uniform in size. We don’t believe in discriminating against misshapen carrots or imperfect potatoes and in fact, love them for their flaws. A less than round apple is still as tasty as their perfectly formed cousins. Taste is what we believe in, because it’s what’s inside that counts. Unless your produce is clearly defective, please accept them as Nature intended.
