    I've never made parsnips before- this was a first for me. I sliced them the long way, which was a pain, but they're attractive that way and cook quickly, so it was alright. I seasoned the parsnips with salt and pepper, did NOT boil them first, did NOT add flour either, and dropped them into a butter/olive oil mixture (I didn't want the butter to burn). They really came out delicious- tender, tasty, and my family loved them (even my dad, and he doesn't like anything unless it's a potato). I'd definitely make these again.  -  28 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I grew up loving parsnips cooked this way by a beloved grandmother. She didnot coat them, just sauted them slowly in the butter. Yummy but an aquired taste, I feel.  -  02 Mar 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Proof you just can't go wrong frying something in butter! This was outstanding, and my husband and I aren't huge parsnip fans. We've been trying to eat local foods in season, and all winter I avoided parsnips except mixed in with lots of other veggies to the point where you can't even taste them. Finally, I saw what is probably the very last parsnips of the season, and I decided that I had to stop being a wimp and give it a go. And boy am I glad I did. Even one of my 2 year old twins ate this up, which felt like a small miracle. My only problem now is that I'm going to have to wait until next winter to eat this again. Well, I guess it's good to have things to look forward to in the winter! Thanks for the delightful recipe!  -  05 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
