I love parsnips and have cooked them many ways but this recipe is the best ever! What flavor - I cooked the parsnips and sliced them early in the day and 15 minutes before serving did steps 3 & 4. Served with Rack of Lamb With Sage Crust Rack of lamb with Sage crust - They make a perfect pair. This is a recipe that will be made over & over - Thanks for posting it lindseylcw

Very different way to serve parsnips from what I'm used to. Usually roast. I think the brandy really added a sweetness to the parsnips. Topped with fresh chives. Unusual in a good way. For ZWT 2009.

Heavenly!!! I have always roasted my parsnips in the oven and this was so much faster and easier!!! I used Grenada blade mace instead of the ground and it looked lovely as both a garnish and ingredient!! I really enjoyed these parsnips, will definitely make again! Thanks for the recipe!
