Parsnips are a root vegetable related to the carrot. They look just like a large white carrot with long skinny ends. Parsnips can be eaten raw and cooked, but are usually served cooked. They have a texture similar to a potato, but are sweeter. Parsnips are a fall crop, and store well, lasting weeks in the refrigerator. They are high in vitamins and minerals, especially potassium. Use like you would a carrot, or try one of our great recipes.
Stored in a plastic or reusable produce bag in the refrigerator, parsnips will last up to a month.
Scrub parsnips to remove any dirt, peel, and shred, dice, or chop for recipes. Larger parsnips contain a core, which you can remove, but for our fresh parsnips it is probably not necessary. Parsnips are excellent, roasted, baked, mashed, in fritters, and stewed.
