Cooking with Parsnips

Parsnip Basics
Mar 16
  By Savannah

■ Parsnips have a mild sweet flavor like carrots and a fragrance like celery.

■ Large parsnips should be peeled and if the center is woody, cut the parsnip into smaller pieces and remove the center.

■ Parsnips can be served raw like carrots. Cut them into sticks for dipping or shred them for salads.

■ Parsnips go well with other root vegetables such as carrots, potatoes and turnips when roasted, mashed or added to soups and stews.
