thin with milk, blend and serve with lots of black pepper as parsnip and apple soup. Yummy,

We thought the cumin was too over powering and I only used a little. Probably better with pork (i served with a beef casserole). Think granny smith apples might be better for a bit more sharpness.

I was a bit nervous about this but it worked well with the Hand and Spring of Pork, I would recommend for pork roasts, compliments well and lovely flavour.

I took the comment above from RachelSC and drained the parsnips and apple well, I reduced the milk to 50ml, whizzed it in a processor to ensure it was lovely and smooth... it was really quite delicious with a pork sausage casserole.

A fairly delicious alternative to mash potato. I would however say that you should add the milk slowly as ours was a little watery

Hello,
I'm planning on making this recipe this week, but I'm not sure about the amount of cumin: is it really 1/4 gram or 1/4 tsp?
Thanks for clarifying.
