Recipe by Rita1652

SO SWEET!!!! It's like eating dessert! It's amazing how many people never had parsnips! They're so much better then carrots! And Carrots are good. You can also add raisins to the honey just before adding the carrots and parsnips the final time.

Parsnips are the perfect veggie...a little honey makes them heavenly. I did not know the people whose home I visited for Thanksgiving well, so this worked out as the perfect dish to take: healthy, tasty, and did not require taking up their oven space to reheat. This was fine at room temperature. Thanks for sharing your recipe!
