Trio of Mashed Roots (Parsnip, Turnip and Carrot)

Recipe by  

"This fall and winter farm recipe was passed down from my Irish-Canadian grandmother Agnes Walsh (Donahoe). It's a simple mash that I updated with a dash of nutmeg and cayenne. An exciting (and affordable) side dish for all holiday menus."

Directions

  1. Place carrots, parsnips, and turnips into a pot and cover with cold, lightly salted water. Bring to a boil and cook until a fork easily breaks apart the vegetables, about 25 minutes; drain. Return vegetables to the pot.
  2. Mix butter, cream, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into vegetables; roughly mash together with a potato masher until vegetables are broken down but individual colors are still visible.

Guess this is the first time I have ever seen this mixture in print. My goodness (coming from N. Ireland) this was very very popular and even now I still make it. My Canadian husband loves it. You can adjust seasonings to your liking but do like this one for a change. Highly recommend as a side dish plus it is also healthy.

Very good except the nutmeg was too prominent and I think my turnip was too small (halved the recipe) because it seemed to have gotten lost. I remember often having carrot and turnip mash when I was young, so it was a little nostalgic for me to make this stepped-up version. Will make again, with minor adjustments.

Quite delicious. I find the nutmeg works wonderfully if you also add salt and pepper otherwise it's a bit too prominent. will definitely make this again.
