Hmmm, that's interesting! The website I found said to use it... however, I halfed the recipe (the broth is only for me) and I think the recipe was for a lot of people. That could be it! Here's the recipe I used: How To Make Vegetable Broth with Kitchen Scraps

Parsnips are awesome in stock....they add a touch of sweetness and depth of flavor. Great for veggie stock but also good in chicken as well. This recipe is the best chicken soup I have ever had, and calls for parsnips.

I have never heard of anyone using corn husk for stock. I can imagine that might have caused bitterness.

Maybe its just my taste, but overly cooked parsnips, as they would be in stock, just taste to banana-ey to me. Not a flavor profile I'm looking for. Plus, not all veggie stock applications would benefit from a touch of sweetness.

Yeah, I was feeling adventurous and wanted to experiment with it. I know never to use it again.
