Parsnips have a long taproot that can grow up to a foot in length and roughly three inches in diameter at the crown. Growing above ground, the plant’s foliage resembles large celery leaves and stems. The tapered root varies in skin color depending on variety, from a yellow-beige to a brighter white. A Parsnip’s flesh is always a creamy white. Parsnips have smooth skin with a sweet, nutty flavor and fine grained flesh.
Available year-round, Parsnips have a peak season in winter.
Parsnips are botanically known as Pastinaca sativa, and are part of the Apiaceae family. The long, pale roots are closely related to carrots, parsley and dill. Parsnips have become a common garden crop in cold-climate regions because the root needs a longer growing period to develop its sweet flavor. There are three commercial varieties of Parsnip root, All American, Hollow Crown Improved and Harris Model, all of which are fairly common in taste and appearance.
Parsnips are a good source of folate, potassium and vitamin C. They also contain fiber, which is beneficial for digestion.
Parsnips, like carrots, may be used in sweet or savory preparations because of their high natural sugar content. Cook diced Parsnips in milk and sugar until tender, then puree, strain and freeze into ice cream. Boil cooked Parsnips until tender, then mash with butter and cream and blue cheese. Saute sliced Parsnips with onions, tomatoes, and vegetable stock, then blend into soup. Thinly slice Parsnip root, fennel and celery root, then toss with a lemon vinaigrette. Store Parsnip root as you would carrots, cool and dry for up to two weeks.
Parsnips were once more popular in Europe than either carrots or potatoes. A staple in kitchens throughout Europe, Parsnips were often eaten during the Christian tradition of Lent, and were considered a good substitute for meat during times of fasting.
Parsnips are native to the eastern Mediterranean region and were cultivated from the wild. The taproot pre-dated potatoes by one hundred years and was quite popular in most households throughout Europe. Colonists traveling to the New World introduced Parsnips to the Americas in 1609. Though popular during the winter in North America, Parsnips are more widely consumed in northern and Eastern Europe and western Asia.
