    1. 1
      Cut parsnips lengthwise into 1/16-inch slices, using a mandoline or knife (a food processor using the slicing disc will also work well). ***If desired the parsnips can be prepared 4 hours ahead before frying - by dropping parsnip slices into a large bowl, covering the parsnip slices with cold water, draining well before continuing.***.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a deep fryer or large saucepan to 325 - degrees F.
    3. 3
      Add parsnips in batches and fry until limp (30 seconds to 1 minute). Transfer fryed parsnips to paper towels, using a sloted spoon. Continue frying until all parsnips are done.
    4. 4
      Heat oil (a second time) to 375-degrees F.
    5. 5
      Add parsnips in batches and fry until golden and crisp (2 minutes). Drain on paper towels and sprinkle with salt.
