I have been hoarding this recipe since I first saw it, and finally made it and really enjoyed it. The parsnip adds a sweet, earthy flavor that goes well with the potato and carrot. I did not have problems with the pancakes falling apart as the other reviewer did- but they do need to get pressed together firmly, in a hot pan (I used non-stick), and I kept them slightly smaller than the recipe recommends. The horseradish sauce made a nice complement, but next time I would add sauce to taste (it was a bit mild for me).

Pressing the patties firmly between your hands when you're shaping them helps bind all of the ingredients together.
Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 2 latkes and about 1 1/2 tablespoons horseradish cream)
