This is from the Montreal Gazette. I love parsnips, so I think this is a great recipe to try. The editor says this recipe comes from Fresh From the Garden cookbook by Perla Myers

  1. In a large heavy ovenproof frying pan, melt butter over medium heat, and saute parnsnips with salt, pepper, and sugar until lightly brown, about two minutes.
  2. Add a half cup of chicken broth and place pan in oven preheated to 350 degrees F for 15 minutes or until tender. If pan juices evaporates add more broth.
  3. Serve, seasoned with more pepper.

If you are a big fan of parsnips or even if you are not you need to try cooking them this way as they look and taste wonderful. I made as written (only need 1/2 cup of chicken stock) and savored every sweet buttery bite. Thanks for the post.
