Swede turnips are definitely not our favourite vegetable, but we love that they grow almost like weeds in our backyard. So, we set out to find ways that we can cook them and enjoy them. We came across swede turnip gratin and flavour was amazing. A big tip from us is to use small swede turnips as the flavour is very mild, we tried cooking it once with large swede turnip and flavour was not nice at all, in fact it tasted that bad we threw the dish in the bin.
