Buttered Fried Parsnips
Parsnips are one of the vegetables I think I ought to like; they are a locally grown vegetable, available all winter after all. But I never managed to be terribly enthusiastic about them until this recipe came along.
- Ready In:
- Wash, trim and scrape the parsnips.
- Cut into uniform pieces and boil in salted water, 25 to 30 minutes or until tender.
- Drain well, and let dry.
- Just before serving, heat the butter in a skillet and saute over moderate heat until light brown on all sides, letting the parsnips caramelize a little in their own sugar. It is best if you have a large enough pan that they can be cooked in a single layer.
- Season with the nutmeg, salt and pepper and serve in a warm vegetable dish, garnished with parsley.

I purchased two large parsnips. One was so tough I could not cut it. So I had one left. I cut in thin rounds and followed the recipe.I sauteed in butter and sprinkled with a little paprika to brown. No one wanted the nutmeg so I left it off. This is good. Parnips are expensive in this area. I would make again if the cost comes down. Thanks for posting!
