- 1 pound parsnips
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Scrape or peel the parsnips then cut them into sticks about the size of your little finger. Dry well with paper toweling.
In a heavy 10-inch skillet, melt the butter; then add the parsnips, shaking to coat. Sprinkle with nutmeg. Cover tightly and saute on medium heat for about 5 to 10 minutes. The parsnips should be tender and gooey, and slightly carmelized. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Very tasty, though they didn’t get “gooey” or very caramelized despite cooking for about 14 minutes and cut to size of my little finger. A little like French fries, actually. I’d use a bit more nutmeg. I also sprinkled on some cocoa-chili powder we have, would use more next time.
