    Roasted home grown parsnips & Butternut squash

    For some reason our local badger population decided not to feast on our parsnips this year despite digging up and eating every single one last year. So, now that we’ve had a nice bit of frost to sweeten them, Andrew dug the crop on the allotment and it is now safely stored in the shed in the Courtyard.  We had roast parsnips and butternut squash (also homegrown) yesterday with our Sunday lunch and today I made a warming soup with the leftovers enlivened with a touch of chilli.
