Parsnip, 1LB


Parsnips have a rather complex taste, similar to carrots, they're sweet but they contain more starch and have a rather earthier and nuttier taste to them.

The long, pale roots are closely related to carrots, parsley and dill. Parsnips were once more popular in Europe than either carrots or potatoes.

Store Parsnip root as you would carrots, cool and dry for up to two weeks.

Parsnips, like carrots, may be used in sweet or savory preparations because of their high natural sugar content. Cook diced Parsnips in milk and sugar until tender, then puree, strain and freeze into ice cream. Boil cooked Parsnips until tender, then mash with butter and cream and blue cheese. Sauté sliced Parsnips with onions, tomatoes, and vegetable stock, then blend into soup. Thinly slice Parsnip root, fennel and celery root, then toss with a lemon vinaigrette.
