Colin -- yep I am on Landis -- stop by for lunch sometime -- but not today -- I'm still in my pajamas! bring the baby, too...
parsnips are very mysterious -- they taste kinda woodsy, in a good way. I don't know how else to prepare em. I'm interviewing SuperFoods author Dr Steven Pratt next week, will ask him what the deal with parsnips is...
sorry, Kristin, Cozy Corner doesnt sell broth -- but I bought one of their turkeys for T'giving and my daddy boiled all the bones and made about 10 baggies of broth -- we split em and I have just three left now.
here's the white bean soup recipe:
fry some bacon in a deep saucepan or dutch oven.
remove bacon and saute a chopped carrot in the drippings.
add 2 stalks of celery, an onion, and a buncha garlic, all chopped.
stir and cook til onion starts to get translucent, less than 5 minutes.
add 2 cans of northern beans (or cannellini), drained, and 2 cups water. bring to a boil, cover, then reduce heat to simmer.
after 10 minutes, uncover, and use a potato masher to mash up the veggies some and thicken the soup.
stir in 2T fresh parsley, salt, pepper, bacon, and HOT SAUCE.
definitely serve it with cornbread!
