Swede is definitely a winter vegetable but I used to find it went all mushy and no matter how well I tried to drain it, water still remained.
It is such a simple trick but add a potato to the diced swede before boiling. Something in the starch will soak up the water and your swede is nice and firm to eat.
This is a great tip and just so simple; to keep the lemons really juicy which is particularly important if you are using the juice of a lemon or you want to get the flavour to flow.
As you take your lemon to use just roll it between your hands or better still on a hard surface, As you roll, you will feel the fruit juicing up. Cut and enjoy
