Recipes & Nutrition Analysis for Parsnips


When shopping for parsnips, choose those that are firm and free of pits. The smaller parsnips are said to be more tender and sweeter.

Refrigerate parsnips unwashed in a plastic bag for up to 3 or 4 weeks.

They can be washed, peeled, and trimmed like a carrot. But unlike the carrot, parsnips are almost always eaten cooked.

To enhance their natural sweetness, parsnips taste delicious when seasoned with nutmeg, ginger, mace, or cinnamon.
