Parsnip

From: Hudson Valley Farm Hub (Organically Grown), Hurley, NY

One of our customers told us that they just don’t know what to do with parsnips. Peel them like carrots, cut them up and roast in the oven with just a bit of olive oil. TOO EASY. They are sweet and fabulous…promise. Their delicious nutty flavor is also ideal for roasts, stews and soups.
