Although you can find parsnips in the store year-round, now is the best time to buy them locally their freshest. Parsnips are like carrots but they’re white, sweeter, and have a mild, earthy flavor. They also have a little more starch, like potatoes. Parsnips are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, and potassium. Buy firm, crisp parsnips and store them in the refrigerator for up to several weeks. You can prepare parsnips just about any way you prepare carrots – try them roasted or in soups and stews. Parsnips make a great addition to mashed potatoes as well.
