  1. Peel the parsnips, chopping the tops and tails off and cutting them into wedges. Cut the larger ones in half lengthways. Put into a large saucepan, covering with salted water and boil for 5 minutes.
  2. Once boiled, drain into a coriander and let them steam dry for a few minutes.
  3. Preheat on the oven to 200C Fan / 220C Fan / Gas Mark 7
  4. In a bowl, start making the glaze by adding the honey, olive oil, Maldon Salt and black pepper together. Mix well.
  5. Pour the glaze over the tops of the parsnips, tossing through to make sure they are coated evenly.
  6. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and lay the glazed parsnips on the tray, making sure none are touching.
  7. Roast for 40 minutes, or until the parsnips are golden and tender. Make sure to turn them halfway to get a nice even roast on each side.
  8. Serve with a sprinkle of Maldon Salt, thyme leaves and pepper.
