We grew up eating parsnips every fall. I love them! We usually sliced them & fried them in a hot cast iron frying pan (like raw fried potatoes), parsnips are the best if you wait until after it freezes then dig them up, so fresh & crisp. Otherwise just peel them & cut them up like carrot sticks.

Thanks for all of the great suggestions everyone!
That fritter recipe sounds great, I'll definitely have to give it a try!

Any veggie, including parsnips, benefit from roasting at a high temp (425) until the begin to carmilize. I like to take any veggie after roasting and hit them with Parm cheese and back under the broiler until browned.

Love parsnips. They can be mashed, boiled, roasted, steamed, or made into a soup. You can substitute them in any recipe calling for carrots.

The only time I've ever had them is in my SIL's chicken soup - and Himself gets to eat all the offerings since I found that they made the soup almost dessert-sweet. However, I've been on a kick to roast veggies, especially when I have something else already in the oven OR dinner is heavy on veggies. They sound like they would be nice snuggled up to carrots in the roasting pan. Might give that a go sometime this winter.

I like them in stew or pot roast, but not so much that it gets sweet. Stirling doesn't like them.

Also, I did try doing a search through here, and couldn't seem to run across any threads or recipes for parsnips, if there really is one (Or a few) I'd love to get a link!
I l-u-r-v-e parsnips! My favourite is parboiled and then roasted round the beef joint. I don't serve them just boiled - not nice at all. They make very good soup - either parsnip and apple or curried parsnip soup. I sometimes put them into a veg curry.

I don't think I've ever had them. Roasting sounds good.
