When it pays rent and does the dishes, then it'll have my appreciation.

Until then it'll retain the title of "sickly-looking albino carrot thing".

That's between me and the parsnip. It's none of your affair.

"Told" it? I brought in The Homestar Runner to demonstrate. Then he did a dance.

Would you believe there are no gifs of this?

Not everyone loves parsnips.

Parsnips a great for homemade chicken stock. They are also tasty in pot roasts.

While I learned a couple new vegetables, no love for jicama? There has to be more roots then listed. Is the suggested in TFA a good buy?

High five!

No because none of the grocery stores around here have any. They're like carrots without all that annoying flavor.

"Horsesnips" is the correct term.

Except when dipped in tempura and deep fried.

We have a shiat-ton up here.  Never had one, though.

Oddly I made some beef stock last weekend and told the parsnips how important they were just before I chopped them and tossed them in the pot. Then I told my daughter how important she was. She ran from the kitchen screaming.

So long as you're not doing unnatural acts with parsnips, that's all cool.

Doesn't this hurt the horses?

Celeriac reminds me of chtulu or however you spell it.

I like parsnips...at least some in my mashed taters.

I love sweet potatoes and probably have that more often (except as french fries) than regular potatoes. Baked, mashed, and just about any other way. not as good with parsnips though.

i just started cutting sweet taters like french fries coat in oil then season in a little salt and pepper and or garlic or onion powder or paprika (whatever you like even a little dried thyme) and baking in an oven. 400 for 25-30 minutes. flip them once or twice during cooking.

good stuff.

Roasted parsnips are your pal.

Parsnips and sauted Swiss Chard is yummy.
Just add a bit of olive oil and crushed red pepper.
YUMMY I SAY!!!

Roast parsnips are the dog's bollocks, as we Brits say...

"On more than one occasion I have been accosted by someone in the grocery store wanting to know what the hairy, bulbous thing in my hand was..."

I don't wonder.

They are available around here in the grocery stores but they cost maybe 3 times as much as carrots. I assume they cost about the same to grow as carrots which means the cost difference has to do with there being little demand for them. Then too, the cost difference depresses the demand for them so that it is a lose-lose situation.

You can add a lot of parsnips to something without their flavor overwhelming it like carrots do.

I do love parsnips. They winter over in our garden, and come out sweet and full of flavor. It's nice being able to harvest something from the yard as soon as the snow melts.

Slow roasted and drizzled with just a touch of maple syrup, Mmmmmm... candy.

I like to cut the leaves off and serve them to my guests in a nice fresh garden salad.

Seems like my guests don't return...  Perhaps my too much vinegar in my dressing?
