Enjoy this farm fresh recipe, originally featured in the Savor the Season Recipe Cards, created by From the Land of Kansas!
Cider-Glazed Roasted Root Vegetables
2 cups apple cider
1 red onion, cut in half and sliced
6 parsnips, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 “ pieces
6 carrots, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 “ pieces
1 large sweet potato, peeled and cut into 1 1/2 “ chunks
2 tsp. fresh minced rosemary
3 Tbs. olive oil
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. In a small sauce pan over medium heat, bring apple cider to a simmer; continue to cook at a simmer, stirring often, for 25-30 minutes, or until cider is reduced to a syrup. Remove from heat and let cool.
Meanwhile, place onion, parsnips, carrots and sweet potatoes onto a rimmed greased baking sheet; sprinkle with rosemary, then drizzle with oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss vegetables until they are well coated with oil and seasonings, spreading them out in a single layer across the baking sheet. Bake, uncovered, for 20-25 minutes, or until very fork-tender. Transfer vegetables to a platter and drizzle with as much apple cider glaze as preferred. Serve at once.
Kitchen Tip: If you don’t have apple cider on hand for this recipe, substitute apple juice. To heighten the flavor a bit, add a whole clove to the apple juice when simmering to thicken into a syrup; remove clove before serving.
