The Sweden Kitchen

When choosing, select those which are about 3 to 4 inches in circumference for the most flavorful taste. These are used to make ketchup and relish. They should feel heavy and firm for their size and also be smooth with skin. Most commercial swedes have been treated with an oil or edible wax so that they will retain for about two months to a year if kept at room temperature. The skin should be very smooth and not too slippery. Make sure they are damp but not wet, and store in an airtight container.


The vegetable that is best to use for a Swedish dish is the one that has a neutral color to it, has a slight flavor, and is of a size that is neither too small nor too large. These include lettuce, mushrooms, squash, asparagus, potatoes, onions, and cabbage. There is no need to season these vegetables. Use any other spices you wish. Many swedes come in small packages of ten or twelve.

A wonderful combination is to use the smaller, firm vegetables and turnips at the same time. It is said that the turnips have a stronger flavor and are easier to chew than the larger vegetables. However, smaller vegetables such as cabbage and cauliflower can be used at the same time on the same day. Cabbage and cauliflower are the "power food" group of vegetables. Try using your imagination and combining these for something different from what you might normally expect.

The cabbage family is made up of two major sub-families. The first is the red cabbage family and includes such familiar varieties as green bell pepper, yellow turnip, and red cabbage. The second is the white cabbage family and includes such well-known varieties as beluga, turnips, kale, cabbage and bok choy. They are often confused with Swedes. However, they are not true cabbages, but carrots.

If you choose to cook swedes with brown paper bag, make sure you are not using a paper bag that has been reused. These bags are often re-sold in markets. To avoid confusion, it would be better to use a new brown paper bag. This will also help reduce waste, since the swede will not go to waste. If you are looking for a novel way to cook swede, consider frying them in butter or olive oil in small amounts of oil until they are crisp and light.

You will also enjoy experimenting with the different styles of fish that are served with Swedenes, such as salmon, trout, haddock and grits. The Swedene is one of the best chargers available, especially when it is used in conjunction with sausages. A classic combination is a plain fish, covered in vegetable garnish and served on top of haggis grills with the steam coming from a lit burner placed over the top.

Swedenes come in many shapes, sizes and colors. All varieties come wrapped in brown paper bags, which makes it easy to store. You can also use a single brown paper bag to roast potatoes and turnips (or both) in your oven. Use smaller pots with tight fitting lids to cook smaller pieces of fish and vegetables.

Try experimenting with vegetable dishes. A great combination is to roast root vegetables. A mix of carrots and turnips makes a tasty combination. Add some cabbage to the roast to make a sweet, mild soup. Serve with swede and potato salads.

Cooked swedes, root vegetables and carrots makes a tasty dish with lots of vegetable flavor. Cabbage, Swede and carrots make a tasty vegetable salad with a tangy dressing. Serve this salad with a sliced rutabaga on top. You can cut the rutabaga into strips for a nice, neat grating.
