Grandma Twit Twoo's Carrot and Swede Mash


Prep time: 
30 minutes


Grandma Twit Twoo's Carrot and Swede Mash


  • 350g swede, peeled and cut into small cubes
  • 200g carrots, peeled and thickly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • pinch of allspice or nutmeg


  1. Peel and roughly chop up all the veg into equal sized pieces. Place in a large pan of boiling water and cook until soft.
  2. Drain and add butter. Mash vegetables together and mix in a liberal sprinkling of allspice or nutmeg if you prefer. It's as simple as that!


This always appears alongside Grandma Twit Twoo's Sunday roast. Really, you don't need a recipe just use whatever swede and carrots you have and add butter and allspice to your own taste. Any leftovers can be fried up as fritters and served with a bit of bacon the next day.
