 I don't much like them cooked or raw ether, but I grew them this fall,
 since my FIL was offering me seeds.  They did fairly well, so I tried
 cooking them, and actually liked them.  Tonight I peeled and sliced them
 and cooked them in a little water with celery salt, black pepper, and a
 very small amount of margarine, just until tender.  The other time was
 basically the same recipe but with a little bacon rather than margarine. >>

Hi David, turnips/swedes are one of my favourite vegetables. I cut them into
cubes, boil in salted water until soft then drain WELL and mash with lots of
butter and ground black pepper. Yummy and now I have just remembered I have
one we never got round to eating at Christmas.
