Honey Roasted Parsnips

Serves 4

600g parsnips
3 tablespoons goose fat or dripping
1-2 tablespoons honey

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Peel and quarter the parsnips.
  3. Place in salted water, bring to the boil and simmer for two minutes.
  4. Melt the fat in a roasting tray on top of the stove and fry the parsnips until golden brown on all sides.
  5. Roast in the oven for 20 to 40 minutes, turning occasionally (the longer cooking time will give more burnt edges, adding a slightly bitter taste to balance the sweetness).
  6. Add the honey, mix with the fat and turn the parsnips to ensure it is distributed over all the parsnips.
  7. Return to the oven and cook for a further 5 minutes.
