I made this for Sunday dinner and it was delicious! Even my husband enjoyed it and he doesn't like vegetables. We had it this time with roast pork but I'm thinking that it will be wonderful with our Thanksgiving turkey later this year. I'm not sure what a swede is but I'm thinking it's like a turnip, so I substituted the largest turnip I could find.
