This is a delicious parsnip recipe, baked with brown sugar, butter and nutmeg. It is sweet and delicious.

I would serve this as a side dish with any plainer meat recipe, something like garlic roasted chicken.

Glazed Parsnip Recipe

gluten free label

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds parsnips (or salsify)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 dash nutmeg
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Method

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Step 2

Peel the parsnips or salsify. Immediately plunge them into water mixed with a little lemon juice to prevent them from darkening. Cut the parsnips (or salsify) into thin strips and place them in a baking dish with 1/4 cup water. Sprinkle with the brown sugar or honey, lemon juice, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Dot everything with butter.

Step 3

Cover and bake at 350°F for 1 hour or until the vegetable is tender. Stir once or twice while baking and add a little more hot water, if needed, to prevent it from drying out.

Did You Know?…

The recipe calls for either parsnips or salsify. We probably all know what parsnips are. They look like white carrots. But what is salsify?

Salsify is a root vegetable that is a member of the sunflower family of plants. Both its roots and leaves can be eaten.

Not a very attractive plant, it really looks like a large stick, but is quite delicious. When cooked the taste has been compared to an oyster, so it is often called the “oyster plant”.

Salsify is high in fiber and low in fat. It contains a healthy amount of Vitamin B as well as potassium.

It can be difficult to find salsify in large grocery stores. You many have to locate it in your local vegetable market or farmers market, or directly from local farmers.

It’s always a good idea to support our local farmers whenever you can. They feed us and need our support to stay on the land. Buying local is better for our health too, as vegetables and fruit are much fresher when they are picked locally and purchased possibly even the same day.
