So I am just going to say this right off the bat…

THIS IS A MUST TRY!

I have only had the pleasure to have experienced parsnip a few times and mainly in soups or stews so needless to say, this blew me away! They were perfectly golden, crispy, tangy, and delicious!!!

    1. I would say parsnips are very close to sweet potatoes and carrots… very good! I have only had them in soups or stews so they were kind of tasteless and it always made me nervous to go out and buy some, but I am glad I did!
