1 cup heavy cream

Combine the parsnips, 1 cup milk and the sugar in a 4-quart saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally for 20 minutes, or until the parsnips are very tender.

Put the parsnips, cooking liquid, the remaining 1/2 cup milk and heavy cream in a blender. Puree until very smooth. Transfer the mixture to a metal bowl. Chill, covered for 2 hours, or until cold.

Churn the parsnip mixture in an ice cream maker according to manufacturer’s instructions for about 25 minutes. Transfer to a container and store in the freezer.
