Candied Parsnips Strips

Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Cook: 40 min.


8 servings

Tender strips of yellow parsnips are coated in a slightly sweet honey sauce. Recipes like this with four ingredients are great to have on hand. —Linda Bussing, Lake Stevens, Washington


  • 2 pounds parsnips, trimmed
  • 1/4 pound butter
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Minced fresh parsley


  1. With a vegetable peeler, peel parsnip. In a Dutch oven cook parsnips in a small amount of salted boiling water for 25 minutes or until tender; drain. Let stand until cool enough to handle.
  2. Cut parsnips into slices or julienned strips. In the same pan, melt butter. Stir in honey and nutmeg. Add parsnips and stir to coat. Cook until lightly browned. Sprinkle with parsley.
