They go well with cumin too - spicy parsnip soup is scrummy.

Isn't it though? I'll jack miine with plenty of chilli and a spot of ginger. Great winter soup, almost makes me sorry that spring's here.

But not that much - asparagus season!

Can I add a recommendation for curried parsnip and bramley apple soup? I had some supermarket version of this once, liked it, made my own, really liked it.

I made some yummy soup a couple of weeks back involving parsnips, leeks, apples and dolcelatte. I have no idea of recipes as I don't follow recipes, I just make stuff up, but if you can work out decent proportions then, yumlicious.

three weeks pass...
They were created to be mashed with cream, butter and white pepper.

Has no one heard of the expression, "Mind your own parsnips"?

four months pass...
All parsnips are my friends - cut them along the length to make 'sticks' and stand them up in a cup of black coffee. Allow to cool before discarding.

'Parsnips are of the stronger flesh because of the stronger flesh's weakness for the weaker flesh'

All the above recomendations can be done with sweet potatoes. I have many recipes and am always cooking them. They are like Yams to the slaughter.

If a Parsnip is a carroty turnip, is a leek a rhubarby onion ?

Also good - Gentle frying in a covered frypan with a bit of paprika, smoked paprika worth a try too.

Wait, why do you go through all the trouble of making sticks and putting them in coffee if you're just going to discard them?

Discarded parsnip sticks in coffee sounds like a recipe from the Futurists.

Fear the one who call himself Kieran.
