I had never used Parsnips until I recently found a recipe for it in a women's magazine. Parsnips was described as being a cousin of the carrot but often ignored in the produce department.
It is said to be low in calories, yet tastes nutty & sweet. The recipe was for parsnips fries. It looked like fries made from potatoes. I decided to try it and was very happy with the results. I will now be using Parsnips regularly. Do try the recipe.
