Creamed Parsnips

This smooth puree is an excellent accompaniment to roast meats, poultry and game, and makes a pleasant change from roast parsnips. This was a popular dish in the 16th and 17th centuries, when food with a sweet flavour, such as parsnips, was often served as a complement to savoury dishes.
