Layers of flavor make this easy braised side dish a favorite for entertaining. It might seem odd to begin the cooking by melting and caramelizing sugar. But trust me, it accents and deepens the natural, earthy sweetness of the parsnips. The parsnips are delicately glazed with a mixture of butter, orange juice, stock, and a splash of vinegar and then finished with a hint of cumin and fresh mint for a pop of color.
