    I did this today. I had no parsley or almonds for the finish but it still came out wonderful. Made them for the side of my nan's leftover liver and onions with some boiled new potatoes. A success all round!

    Sept 28/09 Very good! Made to go with our steaks, a lovely compliment to them. I did make one small change, I left out the sugar, the carrots and parsnips were young and sweet and had enough sweetness of their own. The orange juice gave a lovely flavour and the almunds a lovely crunch. Thanks for posting I will make these again and often. April 20/10 - made again for supper tonight, this has become our favourite way to serve carrots and parsnips, very good and easy too.

    This recipe is a winner. I don't microwave so I adapted it - I steamed the carrots & parsnips for 4 minutes, placed them in a caserole dish, poured 4 tbsp of fresh squeezed orange juice over them - No butter or sugar and let them sit for 3 hours. 20 minutes before dinner I put them in a 350 oven loosely covered for 20 minutes. Piping hot and delicious. Served with Shoarma pork, asparagus & garlic noodles - A wonderful dinner thanks.
