Recipe 5: Fricassee of Parsnips

Boil in milk till they are soft, then cut them lengthways into bits two or three inches long, and simmer in a white sauce, made of two spoonfuls of broth, a bit of mace, half cupful of cream, a bit of butter, and some flour, pepper, and salt. (Cut lengthwise first to boil.)
