Ingredients

  • Fresh carrot
    1 packet (500 g)
  • Fresh parsnip
    1 (500 g)
  • Goose fat or dripping
    1 jar
  • Salt and pepper
    1 pinch

Method

  1. Before you start put the jar of fat somewhere warm so the fat melts to a liquid consistency.

  2. Wash and peel the parsnips and carrots.

  3. Once peeled cut your parsnips into similar sizes, I tend to do thickish chips size.

  4. Parboil the parsnips and carrots, until slightly cooked but not soft.

  5. Drain the water and put back on the stovetop for a few minutes until slightly dry.

  6. Pour fat into a large flat-bottomed dish and start to lay your vegetables into the fat, give them a minute then transfer them with a slotted spoon onto a tray. Basically you want the warm veg to just soak up a bit of the goose fat on all sides.

  7. Continue until all your veg has been dipped and spread out on trays.

  8. Ready to freeze

    Make sure your veg is completely cool before you pop the trays into the freezer, leave the trays for around 2 hours, then you can take them out and the veg should be hard enough to take off the tray with a spatula and transferred to a labelled sealable bag. Ready to be frozen long term.

  9. Ready to Eat

    Cook from frozen, in a hot oven, 180°C. Lay veg on a tray – you can add some sprigs of thyme to the tray if you wish more flavors. They should take 35 min from frozen (20min if defrosted first, but better cooked from frozen).

    5 minutes from the end I like to add some runny honey to my parsnips and cook until they are brown and a bit sticky.

  1. That’s carrots and parsnips prepped for Christmas 2021. They are now in the freezer, hopefully bagging them up tomorrow.
