Parsnips are rewarding--primarily because they are at their best when the garden is at its meekest. From late February until mid-April, whenever the ground is unfrozen, head to your garden to unearth big, sweet parsnip roots. They're unbeatable roasted, and--mashed and whipped into your favorite muffin recipe--they make terrific baked goods. They do occupy garden space the whole season long, but they are delightfully free of troubles. Just plant them, weed a few times when young, and fohgedaboudem. Very nice sugar content making it so tasty mashed like potatoes. Just add a little butter. 95-105 days. Versatile and nutritious parsnips are being added to the menus of many gourmet restaurants. You’ll love the tender carrot-like roots for their sweet and distinctive flavor that’s delicious in soups and stews, mashed, stir-fried or roasted. The trick to growing the sweetest parsnips is to wait to harvest the roots until after the first frost. Cold temperatures change the starch into sugar making them sweet and flavorful.
