We have barbecues at New Year... great fun  :ohmy: :ohmy:

Will try out the swede idea  :D

NHSS might approve but I'm not so sure those eating BBQ swede will agree... It might need a quick of something sweet to improve the taste. A honey glaze? Worth an experiment maybe...  ::)

I have inherited a few swede on my new allotment. Some interesting ideas on this thread. Swede seems to be very common on allotments round here - I wondered what people did with them all.

I don't see why not you know, cos it's lovely tossed in oil, sprinkled with salt and chilli pepper and roasted till it's sort of charred round the edges :lol:
So yes stick a skewer through it and do the same thing for barbie...YUM

We use our bbq all the year, and swede on a metal skewer cooks quickly because of the heat from the metal,  you know, abit like jacket pots with skewers through.  Mrs Bouquet

I noticed last night that Jamie Oliver avoided swede in his roast veg for Christmas & went for turnip instead. Shame.

I saw that programme too Leedsniner. I think some people just don't like Swede, there seems to be some sort of perception that it is only good for cattle fodder. The same attitude prevails in some parts over Kale.

I say, some people just don't know what they're missing!  :tongue2:
