I know that this is a swede, but I'm sure that when I was a little girl we called it a turnip. Is it all in my imagination?

  1. Hello Doohie,
    Now, firstly, thanks for reading/following my old blog. It is always nice to welcome new friends. :)

    Secondly, may I wish you best of luck with your blog. At first I had trouble thinking of things to write about but after a while you will find that subjects just 'turn up'.

    That to me is a swede (and always has been) but it was in the news lately, I think in relation to what goes into a Cornish Pasty?
    I can't remember exactly, but I think it was because in Cornwall they call a Swede -
    - a Turnip!
    Now in Scotland, they call turnips just "neeps" and have them with Haggis. (and so do I).
