The other vegetable side dish in the Christmas Dinner that we made is mashed carrots and swedes. this is something that my grandmother used to make, and is especially delicious. In england the vegetable is called Swede, but here in america they call it a Rutabaga.
whatever you call it its pretty darn good.
This is the easiest thing we made!
heres what you'll need:
salt and pepper
so first peel and cut all the vegetables and put them in a pot covered with water. boil until they are tender, but not mushy
remove and strain, and put them back into the pot. and mash up with a potato masher
add some butter, salt, pepper, and a little bit of nutmeg, and mash again! keep it a little lumpy though, you don't want this to be creamy.
so that's the carrots!
mmmm mmmm delicious!
