Miss Mullen’s Parsnips Recipe

Pare or scrape or split them in two, that the inside may cook tender, which will be in 2 or 3 hours, according to their size; dry them in a cloth when done and pour melted butter over them in a dish, or serve plain.  They are good baked or stewed with meat.  They may be servied with boiled ham, salt cod or a boiled meat.
