How to make it

  • Peel and cut parsnips into "fries" or wedges.
  • Bring salted water to boil in a large pot.
  • Parboil parsnips for about 5 minutes, or as necessary depending on how big your fries are. You'll want them mostly cooked. Plunge fries into cold water to stop cooking.
  • Empty pot of water, dry and add 2 inches of peanut oil. Heat over high heat until shimmering.
  • Dry parsnips and lower into hot oil in batches. Fry until golden brown (about 5 minutes), stirring occationally to keep them from sticking together.
  • Remove to paper towels and sprinkle with sea salt. Serve hot with ketchup and vinegar.

    I wonder if these could be baked? I'm always scared of deep frying. (even in shallow oil) LOL.

    Being a fan of veggie fries of all sorts (zucchini, carrot, etc.), these sound like I'd love them! :) I'll try baking them and let you know how it turns out.

    Thanks for the recipe!

    Love parsnips! My husband would love these too! Costco sells bags of sweet potato fries, but they are such a HUGE bag you have to eat sweet potato everything for the next week! Although that's not so bad, either! X0

    Looks like you did a very good job for your first time. Lord, you should have seen some of my first time things, our dog would not even eat them! I have never tasted Parsnip Fries but sounds very good.
