Cranberry, apple and parsnip mash

January 20, 2012

Arlo looked at the food and then at me. “Just because it’s pink” , he said, “doesn’t mean it tastes nice. The beloved agreed, “Says pudding to me, although there is a parsnip taste in the background” Arlo looked at me, “See!” he ventured.  Poppy looked at the plate “Does it have to be on that colour plate?” She has a point.

It’s rare treat as a mother to elicit so many comments about a single issue. I regard it as a success. I regard the pink mash a success too – not aesthetically perhaps, but gastronomically, and not as a pudding either.  A satisfactory accompaniment  to rocket, and potato, leek,  mushroom, and carrot bake.

Cook a peeled chopped parsnip, and a peeled chopped apple in a little water until soft. In a separate pan cook some cranberries – how many depends on how pink you want the food to be. Mash the apple and parsnip, sieve the cranberries and add the two together.

The cranberries looked pretty so I did a quick painting which is on my other blog.
