From www.vegparadise.com. This parsnip recipe is intended for introducing parsnips to those folks that have never tried them (or have been afraid to try them.) A very simple, no- fuss recipe that showcases the wonderful flavor of parsnips. As the site states: "When you begin with a vegetable rich in flavor like the parsnip, it's best to keep the preparation simple and allow its flavors to be fully appreciated". Use the best quality parsnips you can find, firm not limp but importantly parsnips that are small, as in the size of a small/medium sized carrot. (Too big and they're tough.)
