Ingredients:  
4 russet potatoes, about 2 lb. total, peeled and
cut into rounds 1/4 inch thick
3 parsnips, about 3/4 lb. total, peeled and
cut into rounds 1/4 inch thick
4 TBLS. (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, at room

Directions:
Pour water to a depth of 1 inch into a large pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Put the potatoes and parsnips into a steamer basket and set the basket over the boiling water. (The water should not touch the bottom of the steamer basket.) Cover and steam until the vegetables are very tender when pierced with a small knife, about 15 minutes. Transfer the potatoes and parsnips to a bowl.

Empty the pot and wipe dry. Return the vegetables to the still-hot pot. Add the butter, horseradish, salt and pepper. Using a potato masher, mash until smooth. Add the 1/3 cup half-and-half and mash to blend, adding more half-and-half, 1 Tbs. at a time, if needed to reach the desired consistency. Transfer the vegetables to a serving bowl and serve immediately.
