    HeatherFeather's Note:

    I have been making this delicious side dish every year for Thanksgiving and also for St. Patrick's Day ever since I first found the recipe in a 1994 issue of Bon Appetit. I serve these piping hot with pats of butter melting on top. If you like, provide a small pitcher of warm golden syrup to drizzle over the top of individual servings.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 lbs carrots, peeled,cut into small chunks
    • 2 lbs parsnips, peeled,cut into small chunks
    • 1/2 cup sweet unsalted butter, cut into small pieces,at room temperature

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil.
    2. 2
      Add carrots to the water, and let simmer about 5 minutees, with the lid on, but slightly ajar.
    3. 3
      Add parsnips, and simmer until carrots and snips are very tender, approximately 15 minutes, still with the lid on, slightly ajar.
    4. 4
      Drain and return to same pot.
    5. 5
      Stir over medium heat- this is to remove any additional moisture and should only take a minute or two.

      Can be made 4 hours ahead and reheated.

      Tip: Parnsips look like white carrots and should be peeled just like you would a regular carrot.

      I love parsnips and this is a great new way to prepare them.Thr nutmeg is just the right added flavor to the combiation of the sweet carrots and parsnip.Because I try to cut back on butter I used Chicken Broth and no butter. Delicious. I used apprx 1/4 cup or a bit less broth - just enough to make them fluffy when I whipped them. Thanks HeatherFeather another winner

      I made this 2 weeks ago and forgot to review! I have never had parsnips before but now I love them, this recipe is really delicious and a great way to get even carrot haters to eat them.

      I really liked both the taste and look of this recipe. In Oregon the parsnips were a bit spendy, so I won't make it often..but it is a tasty less-starchy alternative to potatoes.
