Chunks of parsnip roasted in duck fat to make them sweet and chewy, then glazed in maple syrup.
Parsnip lovers will think someone robbed heaven’s candy store just for them.
You can make this in a paddle-type or a basket-type air fryer.

Maple Glazed Roasted Parsnips
Pop duck fat into pan of your paddle-type air fryer, such as an Actifry™. Melt for 2 minutes.
Peel parsnip, cut into 2 to 3 cm (1 inch) or larger chunks, pop into pan of machine.
Cook for 40 minutes. Check. I usually give 3 or 4 minutes afterward.
For the last 3 to 4 minutes of cooking, sprinkle the parsley and drizzle the maple syrup over them.
For basket-type air fryer such as a Philips AirFryer™, melt the fat in microwave and pour over the chunked, peeled parsnip in a large bowl, toss, and roast in the basket. When done, toss in a bowl with the maple syrup and parsley and return to roaster for 3 to 4 minutes to glaze.
Parsnip always shrink like mad when they are roasted — that’s why you need so much of it to start. Feel free to err on the side of caution and use a few more parsnip.
Instead of duck fat, you can use the same amount of goose fat, or suet. Or, try 3 to 4 tablespoons of oil (oil evaporates so you need far more.)
Instead of maple syrup, you could try honey, or golden syrup, or anything else that strikes your fancy as a glaze.
