"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."

Cook and stir until the parsnips are almost tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the sugar and vinegar; continue to cook until the parsnips are tender, 3 to 4 minutes more.



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 ...
