I made this recipe instead of potatos for our holiday dinner and received great reviews for my work. Very tasty and different. Of note though, parsnips take a long time to soften. Steaming them for up to 30 minutes doesn't work, they really need to be boiled, otherwise you'll end up with lumps of parsnips in your whipped carrots. Read More

I love both parsnips and carrots and imagined this would be a delicious way to combine them. I followed the directions exactly but when I tasted it it was bland mush. I started doctoring using some of the suggestions in other reviews (I added a little brown sugar kosher salt a little pepper a dash of allspice and some ground ginger). That improved the flavor but not enough so I tried adding a little honey and more ginger and it was still not good. Read More
