Ingredients

  • 4 parsnips, peeled and cut into ½-inch dice (use 5 if they are small)
  • 4 carrots, peeled and cut into ½-inch dice (use 5 if they are small)
  • 2 shallots, peeled, ends removed, and cut into quarters

  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon crystallized ginger, minced
  • 2 tablespoons mild honey, chestnut honey preferred

Directions

  3. Spread out the mixture in the prepared pan and cook for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the parsnips and carrots are cooked and the tip of a sharp knife pierces them easily.
