Cant bear any of the yucky squash family but I love parsnips. I buy mine loose from my local Tesco, and roast them with the potatoes for one hour at 180 (that's 350 for our cousins still living in the stone age ). Don't cut them too thin like chips, but halved (or quartered if very big). Mine always turn out sweet and tender, but not mushy.

Gspotje - re horseradish, when I was a kid my Polish brother in law who had a robust sense of humour offered my cousin and me half a crown each if we could chew a piece of horseradish for a minute. I think we lasted about 10 seconds, and Walter kept his five shillings. These days he'd have been done for child cruelty!
