"My wonderful Mother gave me some cookbooks at Christmas many, many years ago. At the time, I was not really interested, but a few years later, this recipe was in one of those Christmas cookbooks that I would never separate with. Who was it that said "Mother knows best"... I quite often think she knew me better than myself. This is a recipe from one of those wonderful books that our family enjoy over winter... I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Note~ It will depend on the sweetness of the swede as to how much of the sugar and nutmeg you use. The secret is to taste as you go."
