    ChefWhiz's Note:

    This is a unique sweet and tasty soup. It needs no doctoring, but if you prefer a less sweet taste, cut back a little bit on the maple syrup. This can be enjoyed as the main dish at any meal. Try it for breakfast for unusual fare. This recipe calls for making the parsnip soup first and later cooking and adding diced potato.
