This recipe has been submitted for play in ZWT8 - Ireland. Posted at www.ireland Small parsnips taste much nicer than the larger ones, they have a nicer texture and do not have the woody taste that the larger ones sometimes have. They are a lovely alternative to potatoes, great with chicken, beef or pork.
