  • This is a brilliant mash!  I

    This is a brilliant mash!  I was looking for a way to cook swedes, and I used this recipe and it was indeed very tasty.  I didn't do the bacon step, and as mentioned used swedes not parsnips, but I can only image how good this would be with parsnip too.  well done, very yummy.  Love
