For centuries, parsnips have been enjoyed in rural Ireland where they
provided variety in winter when green vegetables were unavailable. While
most cooks think of them as an ingredient to flavor and color soups and
stews, on recent trips to Ireland I've found chefs serving them almost
as frequently as potatoes and carrots. They hold up well to baking,
frying, or puréeing, and their sweet flavor combines well with other
2 1/2 pounds parsnips, peeled and sliced
3 tablespoon chicken stock (see Note)
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
In a saucepan, cook parsnips in gently boiling water until slightly
tender, about 15 minutes. Drain.
In an ovenproof casserole dish, combine parsnips and stock and sprinkle
with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Dot with butter and bake in a preheated
350°F oven until browned and tender, 30 to 35 minutes.
