Swedes belong to the same family as turnips & cabbages.

An average Swede, around 100 grams, adds just 100kJ to your meal & provides 2.8 grams of fibre.

Swede is a hybrid between a turnip & a type of cabbage which was developed in Sweden in the 17th century

Swedes are sweeter & drier than turnips & are purple-green at the top, cream at the bottom & yellowish inside

Swedes partner with nutmeg, parsley, coriander & black pepper

Mashed swede keeps & reheats very well, even after being stored in the fridge for a day or two
