Parsnip and sour apple soup is absolutely delicious. I have a recipe for it somewhere, but cant remember exactly what went in it, when I made it. You could probably get suggestions here on Discuss Cooking and try making your own receipe.

Not something I buy--but we do grow parsnips. We prefer to dig them after the first hard frost in the late fall. I use them in place of carrots in soups.

My mother always served them in the fall and winter. I put in on the list of my least favorite vegetable. I find it too sweet. She always served them in a boiled dinner with a smoked shoulder or brisket. As you have seen, there are many recipes and way to serve them.

Buy a couple of them, slice them into medallions and boil them in salted water. Then eat them with butter. That way you will find out if you like them or not. It is a root vegie and grows underground like a carrot or beet. If you find that you like them, use them as you would a carrot.

The LCBO Food and Drink magazine has several recipes using parsnips:

Recipe Search Results

I haven't tried these recipes, but I have made many recipes from Food and Drink. I haven't been disappointed yet.

I do not really eat them, unless I grade them before putting into a soup. Actually same with carrots or beets. I just do not like vegies in general. But I cannot imagine making soup without.
