Good ol' parsnips

It's amazing how a diet of whole foods had changed my taste. After being off processed foods, and avoiding sugar like poison for two years, some things I never liked have somehow become palatable.

So yesterday, after a few moments' deliberation, a bag of parsnips joined the carrots in the grocery cart. Since I am not an adventurous cook, I simply boiled the lot for twenty minutes. Today I had some as a side dish to my fatty pork roast.

To my surprise, parsnips are sweet and delicious!

I'm still working up to brussels sprouts and fiddlehead greens.
