  • “A neighbor gave me two lovely parsnips that have been wintered over… They weresoooo sweet that when I used them in this recipe they nicely balanced the hot pepper in this lovely veggie sidedish.Thanks so much for posting.=)This is a keeper!! (I’m e-mailing it to several friends. )”

  • “Totally yummy and so easy to make!I made these for my 85 year old mother who has always loved parsnips and she thought they were absolutely wonderful – so I’ll certainly be making these again, Bergy!I omitted the optional jalapeno pepper because we have a VERY low tolerance of anything hot but, apart from adding a few additional herbs – rosemary, thyme and sage on this occasion – I didn’t change a thing.Fantastic recipe: thank you so much for sharing it!Made for All New Zaar Cookbooks Tag.”

  • “Bergy, confession time! I have never had a parsnip in my whole life, nor did I really WANT to have one LOL!But my DH really wanted to try this recipe, as he enjoys parsnips, so I gave it a go. Am I ever glad I did!!These were delicious!Crunchy on the outside and smooth inside, as promised. I am low carbing, so I made these in place of potatoes, and they really hit the spot. They reminded me of potatoe pancakes.Thanks for a great recipe and a new love of parsnips!Made for PAC Spring 2007.”
