"SO SWEET!!!! It's like eating dessert! It's amazing how many people never had parsnips! They're so much better then carrots! And Carrots are good. You can also add raisins to the honey just before adding the carrots and parsnips the final time."

"Parsnips are the perfect veggie...a little honey makes them heavenly. I did not know the people whose home I visited for Thanksgiving well, so this worked out as the perfect dish to take: healthy, tasty, and did not require taking up their oven space to reheat. This was fine at room temperature. Thanks for sharing your recipe!"
"What a good way to fix Carrots and Parsnips. They are Delicious nice and sweet.I steamed the carrots and parsnips together until tender, then followed the the recipe to a tee. People that haven't eaten parsnips have sure missed out. Thanks for posting another way to enjoy Parsnips."
"I love carrots and I love parsnips so this was veggie heaven ! Very easy to prepare and can easily make this for a crowd.....thanks so much for giving me an alternative to boring peas and carrots !"
"Never had parsnips...rarely cook carrots...made this and decided we could all eat more of them. Everone loved this dish....it's about time we added different veggies to our menus. Thanks sooooo much!"
"Rita, this is definitely a ***** recipe. My first experience with parsnip and will definitely be a regular in my house. Made this dish with dinner for family and my picky bro-in-law and all he did was RAVE!!! KUDOS GIRL!!!"
"Rita, you are helping me on my journey to loving new vegetables! This combination is not only very appealing, but so complimentary to each other. So simple, so yummy and the onion adds a perfect zing to the sweetness. We will enjoy these often! MERP'd for All New Zaar Cookbook tag."
"Love parsnips and always on the lookout for new ways to prepare them. This treatment was just wonderful and really captured the natural sweetness of the root vegetables without being overly sweet or cloying. The the onions really added to reaching a good balance with the honey. Served this with balsamic chicken and lapped it all up. Made for *ZaarStars* game,"
"This was absolutely delicious! I only had parsnips and used more honey as I like parsnips sweet and the flavour was divine. I will definitely be making this again- thanks for posting."
"I made these for the first time on Thanksgiving (brave, wasn't I?) and they were great! Everybody liked them! I used a bit more honey, but I think it's just a personal preference. Thanks!"
"Owww yumm!! I the kids and i loved this! I had some multi coloured organic carrots from our local CSA basket this week along with organic parsnips leaving the skin on the carrots for extra nutrients and the colour but I do recommend peeling the parsnips. I used water, local raw honey just stirred in, I thought about using a small red onion but desided to follow the simplicity of the recipe as it may have changed the flavour so I used an organic small yellow onion also from the basket, along with sea salt, & freshly ground black pepper. This is a good dish for a potluck dinner or big family gathering as it is easily increased. I did find the boiling of the vegetables a little long so the parsnips started to fall apart when stirring in the honey. I would reduce that text time."
"I made this for our Thanksgiving dinner. It's the second time in my life that I have used parsnips and the first time I enjoyed them. The first ones I tried were quite large with a strong unpleasant taste but I found small ones (about the same size as my young carrots) at the market and what a difference!. This recipe has opened up the world of parsnips for me. We all loved this dish and DH even ask for it again. The next time I see small parsnips they will be added to my cart. Thank you Rita. :D"
"Excellent recipe - this dish goes with many different things. I added twice the amount of honey and used the drained liquid from the carrots/parsnips as part of the water for the accompanying rice. Very nice!"
"This was good. We overcooked ours, so it was pretty mushy, but still good."
"This was so nice I love carrots and parsnips I only use in a pot roast. They were sweet and the onions were soft and golden brown.Easy to do , thank you for posting Made for zwt6 for the xtra hot dishes"
"If you haven't had parsnips before this would be a great first-attempt recipe. Its super easy to do and tastes wonderful. I had a turnip rolling around that I wanted to use up, so I threw that in as well. Went wonderful with our BBQ last night! A nice twist on root veggies as I usually roast them - this didn't take as long and had plenty of flavor. These were also good when they cooled to room temperature. Made for ZWT6."
"Mmm, ~Rita~, this is a delicious, healthy, sweet recipe that was enjoyed so very much in my house. The carrots and parsnips go so well together and the honey adds a lovely taste to them. I once had a recipe similar like this prepared by my host-mum when living abroad for a year and ever since I had wanted to recreate it. Well, with your recipe I have finally done so. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us! Ill certainly make it again! :) Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap #20 March 2010."
"This recipe was simply amazing. I made this for our Christmas dinner and everyone simply adored it."
"Oh wow, who woulda thunk it? This is an incredible melding of two veggies that I grudgingly eat not very often. But I say, these were INCREDIBLE together. I did it EXACTLY the way Rita said, except for the honey; I used agave nectar. Hubby and I have fallen in love with this recipe. We will make it often - and leave it alone, as it is perfect AS IS."
"We've had a couple of deep frosts so the carrots and parsnips overwintering in the garden were really sweet and deliciously enhanced by this recipe. I changed nothing and won't next time either. "
"We regularly eat carrots – really sweet baby carrots – and parsnips throughout winter. I’m so glad to have found this recipe. It’s a great mid-week recipe to make on nights when you are not otherwise using the oven. I boiled the carrots and parsnips in my Vegetable Stock Recipe #135453 and, when I sautéed the onion, I added 2 cloves of chopped garlic (just couldn’t resist). The flavour from the broth and the added sweetness from the honey made these just SO delicious. Before melting the butter, I dry roasted ½ cup of pine nuts, which I then scattered on top of the carrots and parsnips just before serving. I just felt like adding something crunchy. A recipe I’ll certainly be making again. SO yummy! "
