You can use any stock that you have. We used lamb stock as we didn’t have any venison stock at the time. Or you can substitute for vegetable stock.
Garlic chives are fresh chives grown from the root of garlic. If you don’t have any, you can substitute it for fresh chives and some garlic puree.
Swede = what Americans call rutabaga and what the Scottish call neeps.
