    One parsnip root was pulled today, cooked and tasted. The root has the flavour and texture of a sweet potato, and very pleasant to ingest. There was no evidence of a woody center, and the root could be described as perfect. This vegetable is not often served, considering once it was a main crop substituting for the potato. It stores well, by placing in dry sand or peat moss, similar to storing carrots.

    I planted parsnips 3 yrs ago and loved them. They never got very big but were nice and sweet. Too bad I'm the only one that ate them, well, actually, I should be quite happy about that.

    Oh! I haven't had parsnips in so long! My favorite way to cook themis roasting in the oven with other root veges, onions, garlic and a little olive oil. Yumm!

    I love parsnips, but I can't seem to get any root vegetables to grow. Actually, who am I kidding, I can't get anything to grow.

    Durgan, I may have to kidnap you to do my gardening next year.

    I LOVE parsnips! Reminds me of a white carrot......

    Mother in law taught me to cook them in a special way. She cut them into chunks and boiled them in sugar water, a simple syrup solution. When tender, she took them out and put a little butter on them. Talk about melt in your mouth! Ummmm..... I wish she were still alive......

    Actually that is the method used, that convinced me that parsnips were a fine food.
    Now I eat them cooked by any method.
