    Hi Colleen,
    Thank you for your comment. Parsnips are a rather new veggie for us to enjoy. I’s only been the past few years..but we’re making up fr lost time. We’ve been enjoying lots of different parsnip recipes and this was one of them. It made really nice open-aced sandwiches for lunch. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
