Baked Parsnips

Parsnips have been enjoyed in most of rural Ireland for centuries and were a staple in most home kitchens when other winter vegetables weren't available. Most people think of parsnips as an addition to flavor soups and casseroles, but they're actually quite frequently served as a side dish in many homes in Ireland, almost as frequently as potatoes and carrots. They hold up well to most cooking methods, and their mild, sweet flavor combines well when mixed with other vegetables. The nutmeg adds a lovely warm touch.
