I enjoyed this, but made the mistake of letting others see me make it. They wouldn't even try it. I will note that if you use the bought pie crusts, that it will make 2 pies instead of one.

IMHO it doesn't taste like pumpkin pie but for the spices. It's more bitter, as you would expect parsnip to be. The texture is more like a casserole than a creamy pice, and mine came out too salty.
