One parsnip root was pulled today, cooked and tasted. The root has the flavour and texture of a sweet potato, and very pleasant to ingest. There was no evidence of a woody center, and the root could be described as perfect. This vegetable is not often served, considering once it was a main crop substituting for the potato. It stores well, by placing in dry sand or peat moss, similar to storing carrots.

Parsnips are much better tasting ( in my opinion ) roasted :)

Agree. That is why I roasted them using the Dutch Oven..
