Got parsnips? #loveyourrootveggies

Back in the waning days of 2016, Anna Helmer nominated the parsnip for Crop of the Year. I bought a bag of them – my first ever parsnip. I’ve roasted them, chucked them in a chickpea curry soup, and am still on the hunt for good parsnip recipes, so consider this an invitation/request/challenge.

Here’s Anna’s photo journal of a season in the life of a parsnip – from seeding, to sprouting, to sized-right-up-very-nicely-thank-you-very-much.

Recipes tips welcome.

And as the seed catalogues are pored over, a question: what will be the crop of 2017?
