Parsnip pure with orange

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 cups Parsnips, sliced cut about 1/2\" thick
1 \N 2\" strip orange zest
1 cup Chicken stock
\N \N Juice of 1 orange
¼ teaspoon Grated orange zest
1 tablespoon Butter cut into bits
\N \N Salt and pepper to taste

Combine parsnips, orange zest, and stock in a 10-inch skillet. Bring to a boil over high heat, lower the heat to a simmer, and cover the pan. Cook for about hour, until the parsnips are soft. Discard the orange zest.

Pass the parsnips and what is left of the cooking liquid through a food mill or pure them in a food processor. Stir in the orange juice, grated zest, butter, salt and pepper and serve.

Note: This can be made a few days ahead. Either reheat it gently on top of the stove, stirring often, or put the pure in an ovenproof casserole and reheat, covered, in a 375F oven. You can also leave the casserole uncovered and top it with buttered crumbs if you like.
