Swede, rutabaga, turnip
Turnip contains small amounts of salicylates. However, swede which is a small young turnip no larger than a grapefruit, is failsafe.
Just as there’s language confusion over “shallots“, there’s language confusion with swede. No one has ever heard of swede in the states, as I discovered in a recent conversation on a messageboard. They call it rutabaga over there. I always wondered what rutabaga was!
Swede, or rutabaga, is quite nutritious. It only contains 5% carbohydrate. Two and a half cups meets your RDA of vitamin C. The same amount contains about a third of your daily needs of magnesium, thiamin, and B6, as well as significant amounts of other B vitamins, minerals, and folate.
Swede is my new friend, but somehow, I don’t think I’ll manage to eat more than a cup.
