My husband and I both enjoyed this sweet, delicate soup that uses yummy parsnips. I have a hard time using water in a soup, so I couldn't help myself and used 2 cups of apple juice and 2 cups water. Now that I've tried it, I will plan a dinner for friends with this soup as a starter and see if they can guess the secret ingredient.
