Posted: September 25, 2013 - 3:08pm

4 medium baking potatoes, peeled and thickly sliced

2 medium parsnips, peeled and thickly sliced

2 medium turnips, peeled and thickly sliced

2 ribs of celery, diced

2 medium apples, peeled, cored and diced

2 teaspoons chopped fresh garlic

3 tablespoons butter, softened

1/2 cup sour cream

Salt and pepper to taste

Put the potatoes, parsnips and turnips in a large saucepan and cover generously with water. Bring to a light boil over medium-high heat and cook for 5 minutes. Add the celery and apples, cover and continue cooking over low heat for about 25 more minutes or until the vegetables are fork-tender. Drain and return vegetables to the pan.

Stir in the garlic, butter, sour cream and salt and pepper. Mash with a potato-masher or puree in a blender. Makes 6-8 servings.
