Usually if I say parsnips someone will ask what they are. The veggie is not as well known as those of us who like them think. Every time I serve them however, I gain a new recruit.
- 2 1⁄2 lbs parsnips
- 2 ounces butter or 2 ounces bacon fat
- 3 tablespoons stock
- salt and pepper
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- Pre-heat oven to 375°F (or whichever temperature you need to cook your meat).
- Peel parsnips, quarter, and remove any woody core.
- Parboil for 15 minutes.
- Place in an ovenproof dish. Add stock and sprinkle with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Dot with butter and bake for 30 minutes on a low shelf in a moderate oven.
Parsnips are one of myfavorite vegetables but as stated they are not that well known. This is an easy tasty recipe. Do not over boil the parsnips I usually only parboil them for about 10 minutes. If they are huge parsnips I let them cool and then cut out the center core before continuing with the recipe.. Your recipe added to my enjoyment of my dinner - Thanks
