Why, parsnip?

If you look at the parsnip you would think it is a cross between an ordinary carrot and sugar beet. It is a white root of about 20 cm in length. It is less sweet than a regular orange carrot has an aniseed flavor. Some find it rather as celeriac flavor. He is particularly rich in minerals.
After the parsnip harvested it softens quickly. Therefore, it is advisable not to keep him too long. It is best to conserve it in a bag with holes, no longer than a day or three-four.


This vegetable has a long history behind it. Originally he was only found in the countries bordering the Mediterranean and was thus known to the Romans and the Greeks. During their conquests throughout Europe imported the Romans parsnip with us. The plant which was about the size of a classic root, turned out to be longer when he suddenly here, in a colder climate, was grown. This white root was quite popular in the lowlands and served in the Middle Ages as a precursor of the potato.
The parsnip can be used very well in the kitchen, both raw and cooked and baked. It is often used as an ingredient in a stew or you can make puree. Some use it to flavor a soup, but even better is to use the carrot as a main ingredient. A parsnip soup with curry example.
