Julia's Roasted Carrots and Parsnips

Serves 6 to 8. There will be no leftovers.


6 to 7 fresh pulled garden parsnips.
    HINT: Pull parsnips after the first heavy frost. They turn sweet.
6 to 7 fresh pulled garden carrots. Save the Carrot Tops.
3 tablespoons olive oil.
2 1/4 teaspoons of garlic powder. Season each roasting pan with a 1/4 teaspoon.
Salt, plain or Iodized to taste.
Freshly ground pepper, to taste.

Preheat your oven to 425°F.

  1. Wash, and peel the parsnips. Cut into 2 inch long sticks, each about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. Wash, and peel the carrots. Cut into 2 inch long sticks, each about 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Divide the parsnips and carrots between 2 shallow baking pans.
  4. Toss each pan of vegetables with 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil.
  5. Spread vegetables in one layer and season each pan with garlic powder, salt and pepper.
  6. Roast vegetables in the preheated oven, switching positions of the pans, halfway through the baking process.
  7. Occasionally stir the roasting vegetables.
  8. Roast the vegetables about 20 to 25 minutes, or until browned and just crisp. Do not burn...!

Garnish with the saved carrot tops. Serve to waiting guests. Hmmm... good.

Makes a nice side dish during the Fall Harvest season and at Thanksgiving. It is simple and delicious.

Taste of Gloucester Cook Book The Taste of Gloucester - A Fisherman's Wife Cooks - 8th Edition
"The Taste of Gloucester" cookbook was created by the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives and the Cape Ann League of Women's Voters to share recipes of lesser known species of fish as well as familiar ones. Their cookbook, The Taste of Gloucester has sold over 200,000 copies. The Taste of Gloucester recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions. The original purpose of the cookbook was the promotion of underutilized fish to help the local fleet diversify. Squid, Atlantic Herring and Shark recipes are scattered among those for more familiar species. Copies of The Taste of Gloucester - 8th Edition, can be ordered through the Yankee Grocery Country Store.
