About Organic Swede
The Swede (Swedish Turnip), also known as a rutabaga or yellow turnip, is a root vegetable that originated as a cross between the cabbage and the turnip. Superb in soups (particularly minestrone) or for roasting or mashing.
In Scotland, where it is known as neeps, Swede is the traditional accompaniment to haggis on Burns night. Swede has a round shape and a purple-green skin, and the flesh is yellowy-orange, with a sweet, earthy flavour. It disintegrates fairly easily if overcooked, so always keep to cooking times.
Cut into chunks and boil (12-15 minutes), roast (40-55 minutes) or steam (10-15 minutes).
