Agreed! Can there be any finer thing in the word than roast parsnips? In fact - better roast any vegetable than boil it. There's bound to be a few exceptions to that, but the persistence of boiling in English cooking I find alarming in the extreme. Roast ingans are my favourites right now...

How would it be to sing bring I roast parsnips though? What do we value most - culinary perfection or fidelity to the tradition? Just as long as no one takes us too literally of course.

Any other good vegetable / beer related folk songs out there, or do we need another thread for that?
