"Parsnips are a wonderful vegetable especially when cooked like this. Very easy recipe with tasty results. Try to get nice white parsnips of medium size. You don't have to remove the core but they are more tender when you do take the time to cut it out."

Absolutely delicious! I wanted something different for Thanksgiving this year and this fit the bill perfectly! Made as directed using apple cider and brown sugar, but forgot to cut the core out of the parsnips. Wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
