    Has anyone any secrets to cutting turnips?? I love the stuff but trying to cut it up half kills me!! The shops sell enough of it whole so im guessing there must be some deep dark secret to peeling and cutting it??:sigh:

    turnip!

    Get a large knife, cut turnip in half, slice each half,then you can peel each slice!

    I hate chopping swede too, but love eating it. They are only 34p ish in Lidl at the moment, rather than 80p odd in Tesco.

    for any cheese hard or soft i use the lowest fat version available whichever supermarket im in, i dont tend to just stick to one brand though cathedral city lighter is rather moreish so i tend to avoid that ! its WAY too yummy!
