Ingredients

  • 500ml double cream
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • whole nutmeg, for grating
  • a few sprigs of thyme
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 6 parsnips, about 1.5kg, peeled

Step by step

Get ahead

Bake the gratin the day before; reheat, covered in foil, at 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6 for 20-25 minutes.

  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 6. Pour the cream and milk into a pan. Add the honey, a generous grating of nutmeg, the thyme, bay and ½ teaspoon of salt. Bring to simmering point, then leave to infuse for 10 minutes. Strain into a bowl, discard the flavourings and return the liquid to the cleaned pan.

  2. Slice the parsnips lengthways, into thin strips, using a mandolin or a very sharp knife. Alternatively, slice into thin discs using a food processor. Add the parsnips to the pan, stir to coat in the creamy mixture, cover with a lid and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Pour into an ovenproof dish and cover with foil. Place on a baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for a further 25-30 minutes until browned and the parsnips are tender.
