These parsnips are a winning recipe whether you've liked parsnips in the past or not. I experimented with this recipe to try to make parsnips more enjoyable for folks who previously didn't enjoy them. This one is good for a sodium restricted diet. It tastes like you're cheating that diet but you won't be. Enjoy.

The flavors really go well together. - The earthy parsnips, salt from bacon, tang from vinegar, with a hint of sweetness from the sugar and the crunchiness of the nuts. Didn't have pecans so I used walnuts. Will make again. Read More

The flavours went together well! I was quite surprised. The parsnips were a little under-cooked, so I'd recommend cooking them slightly longer. I will definitely impress guests with this side dish! Read More

My father asked for a parsnip dish when we cooked dinner for them. Without ever really knowing what a parsnip was we stumbled upon this recipe. My father absolutely loved this recipe and has asked for it several more times! I don't care for parsnips but lucky us he always asks to take home all of the leftovers! Read More

Patricia—thanks for sharing recipe. It was easy to make, and the flavors were great. I did need additional cooking time to get the parsnips al dente. I am always looking for low-sodium recipes; you don’t need salt at all in this recipe! I will be making this dish again. Read More

Very nice combination of ingredients! I used regular bacon and omitted the onion and this turned out quite tasty. Will make again! Read More
