Top Review by Bergy

I baked these in the oven but I precooked them until just done. I did this step earlier in the day.Then placed them in a baking dish used Splenda brown sugar, Sprinkled the sugar, lemon juice & zest over them - Popped them in the oven 20 minutes before serving. The lemon is wonderful with the parsnips Thanks Jen for a recipe that will be repeated
