Growing Rutabaga, also Swedes

I enjoy eating swede and have never considered it a sweet type of vegetable. I love it cooked with potato and carrot and then mashed with milk and butter. I like it simply steamed. I think it is simply personal preference.

I love swedes as well. We eat them as you suggested and also 'julienne' them on a V slicer and add them to creamed corn after they are cooked. Kids like them that way too.
