1. Cube the carrots and swede, and finely chop the garlic, dates, cauliflower, onions, apples, courgettes and gherkins. Combine all the ingredients except the colouring in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer.
2. Simmer until the swede is cooked through but still firm (about 1 1/2 to 2 hours). Then add the liquid colouring until the colour is dark brown.
