Walnut Parsnips and Madeira

2 lb. parsnips, peeled
2 fluid oz. dry Madeira
4 fluid oz. double cream
1 1/2 oz. butter
Sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 oz. walnuts, chopped

If the parsnips are large, remove and discard the cores. Cut the parsnips into 1-inch pieces. Put the pieces in a vegetable steamer or wire colander, and place over a pan containing a few inches of water. Cover the pan tightly and bring to the boil. Steam over gently bubbling water for 20 minutes until the parsnips are tender.
Put the parsnips into a bowl and add the Madeira, cream and 1 ounce of the butter. Season with salt and pepper, and mash all the ingredients well together. Grease a baking dish with a little butter and put in the mashed parsnips. Dot with the rest of the butter and sprinkle with walnuts over the top. Put in 375 degrees oven for 20 minutes.
