Swede

£0.60£1.20

Swede has the sweetness of a carrot, the tartness of a radish and the texture of a turnip. When roasted it’s flesh goes a deeper orange and it becomes sweeter, a bit like butternut squash, with a nutty, buttery flavor.

A member of the cabbage family, the swede is often confused with the turnip, though they look quite different. It’s also known as yellow turnip, Swedish turnip and Russian turnip and, in America, rutabaga.

In Scotland, where it’s 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.
