I am lucky I have friends who share their fresh garden produce and that we are fortunate to have the Farmer’s market! One of my favorite veggies is parsnips, not a vegetable that I grew up eating and not one I prepared for my family. It’s a veggie I have discovered in my mature years!! It’s a vegetable I prepare often when I have company for a meal, one of my Grand daughters, Alex actually requests that I serve it when she comes and my Grand daughter’s husband, Justin said one time “ I wasn’t too sure about eating parsnips when you served them now when we are invited for a meal I hope they will be served”. Here is my favorite way to prepare parsnips.
6-8 parsnips ( 1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 tsp. salt
3 Tablespoons butter
Peel parsnips, cut in half lengthwise, then in half crosswise. Put in a kettle with water to cover, add salt. Cool until tender; drain. Melt butter in skillet, add parsnips, brown on all sides, over medium heat, turn to keep from burning, add salt and pepper to taste. I usually use half carrots and half parsnips, it pleases everyone’s taste and is colorful too.
Stay safe and have a great week!
