Root vegetables, like carrots and parsnips, are versatile and especially delicious when roasted. Add an unexpected twist of flavour by glazing them with jam. Since root vegetables tend to have a mild taste, you can experiment with whatever jam you have in your fridge.

You can easily make a glaze by combining 1/4 cup jam and two tablespoons of liquid such as water, balsamic vinegar or citrus juice. If you want a thicker glaze, use less liquid. Chef Jose Garces suggests you combine the jam glaze with other spices (like mustard or caraway seeds) for a balanced, savoury dish. You’ll end up with more depth to your glazed veggies.
