Ah, well, it's not just the sweetness, I suppose. I like sweet corn,
f'rinstance, but that's tasty as well as sweet, to me. Anyway, they
can also be a carrier for butter, drool. But parsnips and sweet
potatoes are just so overloaded with sugar I find them unbearable. I
suppose, also, that I just don't like the underlying parsnip flavour,
and sweet potatoes don't seem to have any underlying flavour at all.
