Recipe of the Day: Buttery Salsify Puree with Horseradish (Recipe and photo via Apartment Therapy)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 pounds black or white salsify
1 small clove garlic
2 1/2 tablespoons butter
3/4 cup milk
1/2 tablespoon horseradish, or to taste
salt, to taste
Fill a large bowl with cold water, and add the lemon juice to create an acidulated bath. Peel the salsify, and cut it into 2 inch lengths, slipping the pieces into the bath as you work.
Add the drained salsify and the clove of garlic to a saucepan of cool water, and bring to a boil. Cook for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Drain, and puree with remaining ingredients. Garnish with parsley, or other mild herbs. If you like, this recipe can easily become a soup by increasing the amount of milk until the desired texture is reached.
