What is "Swede?"

I was looking at a recipe for Scotch Broth and it called for a diced "Swede". Maybe Ishbel can help me out on this???

I had to look that one up!

A Swede is a yellow turnip/rutabaga.

I'm glad you found that out because my family are Swedes and I would sure hate for someone to dice us up!

We use lots of 'swede' in our cooking - in soups, stews, casseroles and not least in things like rumbledethumps and bashed neeps and tatties.

They call rutabagas "swedes" in Ireland too! I was a little the first time I saw that too!

when you mash up a cabbage like item (rutabaga, turnip, whatever) with potatoes you start getting cute sounding dishes. you also get really good eats!

Absolutely, a mixed root veg mash/bake can be a beautiful thing! (Celery root is nice with spuds as well.)
