How to store parsnips

Store for 2 or 3 weeks on a cool veg rack or in the bottom of the fridge.

How to cook parsnips

Roast with potatoes and beetroot alongside a roast, or slice very thinly and fry until golden to make crisps. For a new take on roasted parsnips, parboil them for a few mins, then roll in flour and parmesan before roasting. They also make beautiful parsnip purée – boil until tender, then mash with butter and cream until really smooth.
