Parsnip Part II--Still Not Dead (Pastinaca sativa)

Wild parsnips and domesticated potato fried in butter--what better side dish could you ask for? The parsnips were awesome. Here's our advice on parsnips.

  1. Be afraid. It's good to take your time keying out things in the carrot family and watching them for a long time before trying them. It's great way to not end up dead.

  2. Wash well. A good nail brush is a must for these twisty roots. We spent extra time scrubbing and were happy for it.

  3. Gather more. For a root vegetable these cooked down a lot.
