Buttered Swede Mash
- 1 large swede, peeled and diced into small cubes
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- Start by peeling the swede and cutting it into small, even-sized cubes.
- Place the swede cubes in a large saucepan and cover them with cold water. Add a pinch of salt to the water.
- Bring the water to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to medium and let the swede simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the cubes are tender and easily pierced with a fork.
- Once the swede is cooked, drain it thoroughly.
- Return the drained swede to the saucepan. Add the unsalted butter.
- Mash the swede and butter together until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency. You can use a potato masher or a hand mixer for this.
- Season the mashed swede with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning as needed.
- Transfer the Buttered Swede Mash to a serving dish.
