The last of my parsnips was cooked today. This most pleasant vegetable in not often utilized, and I suspect from not cooking in a palatable form.

Method of cooking: Wash, cut into longitudinal pieces fairly thick,steam cook for about five minutes (watch closely since it cooks quickly). After cooking place on a butter greased oven pan, swipe the parsnip slices with butter and sprinkle a small amount of brown sugar, place under broiler and brown slightly. Serve.

The broiling tends to reduce the liquid and toast the parsnips. It makes for a most attractive dish, which even children will like. Any leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator and nuked for later meals. Parsnips make a good substitute for potatoes.
