A hardy and very versatile root vegetable
    Medium-sized, globe-shaped variety with purple skins and a mild, sweet flavoured yellow flesh. Swede is short for Swedish Turnip and it originates in Scandinavia where it’s roasted, baked, boiled, mashed, pureed and used as a flavour enhancer in soups, or thinly julienned in a salad.
