Anyone for Parsnips?

20140104-133013.jpg Just a small selection of parsnips harvested the other day from the allotment. What they lack in quantity they make up for in size.

On20140104-133340.jpge on its own weighed in at just over 1 kg! And for those of you who are already thinking that it must have had a woody texture, you’d be wrong. It tasted amazing!  I love the taste of parsnips but my hubby has other ideas.  He hates the flavour of them.  I can’t even add them to stew without him noticing the odd one that I snuck in there!  My favourite way to have them is roasted with parmesan cheese or made into a hearty warming soup that I freeze in portions for lunch.

More information about how to grow parsnips can be found on my Spotlight on Parsnips post.

  1. These are my ones harvested a fortnight ago. Very tasty they were too, with hardly a flaw inside. I love them roasted with maple syrup and pepper. Yum.

    Very nice looking Parsnips. Mine were terrible this year, slow to germinate and very small. You are correct about the larger specimens not being woody. I had some massive ones (Gladiator) 2 years ago and they were excellent and they are still just as good from the freezer now.
