6 medium-sized parsnips: 1 egg: + level teaspoonful salt: oz. melted butter: a good oz. flour. Boil the parsnips and mash them up well. Add an egg to this purée and beat until the mixture is light. Now mix in the salt, butter and flour, mix well together again and drop by spoonfuls on to a greased heavy frying-pan, as in making pancakes, and fry brown on both sides.
