Getting to grips with a Swede
I saw a post on Facebook that I thought might be useful; especially if you suffer with arthritis…We all know how hard it is to cut and peel vegetables such as swedes but this is a bit of a game changer!.
Place the swede in the microwave (don’t pierce or cut it) and cook for 10 mins, turn (taking caution as it will be hot!) Cook for another 10 mins then allow to cool.You should then be able to cut off the top with ease and scoop out your ready mashed swede, add butter, (I love it with mashed carrot) pepper, mix and serve!

How to prepare and cook kohlrabi
In this video I prepare kohlrabi grown in my kitchen garden. This odd vegetable is easy to grow successfully if the right variety is chosen. In my case, I have only had consistent luck with “Winner”, which I purchase from Stokes seeds. The reason I like this vegetable is that it is dual-purpose (“bulb” and leaves), and it has a wonderful mild flavor. These plants were transplanted in late September and harvested just before Christmas (Northern California region).

How to Prepare Fennel
Cooking Light Executive Food Editor Ann Pittman shows how to trim and core a fennel bulb.
I grow my own fennel. I NEVER throw away the stalks. Yes trim them off the bulb but then slice them thin and you can stir fry them or bake them or add them to a soup. They take a little longer to cook so if you are adding them to a soup put them in the pot first and bring nearly to a boil and keep them that way for about 20 minutes or so before adding other ingredients. Of course I harvest mine young so they are really sweet and tender. The bulb will continue to grow without all the stalks just leave a few on for photo synthesis. The fronds are good in all kinds of cooking. I add them to my pasta sauce. NEVER throw away the greens of a fennel plant as they still taste like fennel, are nutritious and can be eaten if you know how to prep them. And if you really don’t want to work on it you can just add whole stalks to a soup or sauce to add their flavor then fish out the stalks after and toss them into your compost pile.
