Yes, kitchenelf, the parsnips definitely add another dimension of flavor. Kind of peppery. The parsnip texture is also a great part of the soup.

And, yes, this is a wonderfully rich, delightful soup. Definitely a great use of oxtails.

Nope no celeriac here either. I started soup today I browned tails well and they have been simmering with the other vegetables etc a few hours, Will chill to get the fat off of course my little brain is thinking beef bone marrow dumplings would be devine in this soup or egg noodles.
