This was served at a dinner I went to recently. I am not familiar with cooking parsnips, but this dish was delicious. I hope to try it soon.

Wow! This recipe elevates parsnips to a whole new level. I couldn't serve sherry to all my eaters so I made individual servings some with and some without and I sampled both. Without it it is rich and oh so buttery with the sherry it acquires a different taste. I loved both ways. I did omit the sugar it just didn't seem necessary to me. Thank you Barbara! Read More

I made a couple of changes. Firstly I do not cook with Sherry so I omitted it. Secondly I had two potatoes left in my pantry and decided to chuck them in. Thank you for the recipe. I love parsnips and this was a delicious way to eat them! Read More
