what they taste like? What ya use them for? How ya cook them? LOL

I have never eaten one in my life. Only used them for Mrat bait. LOL Was setting some floats yesterday and got to thinking they look a lot like turnips inside. Thought I would try one or two if I can find how to cook them.

Like a really sweet carrot. Cook them any way you might cook a carrot.

Parsnips taste good. They taste a little sweeter than a carrot with a little stronger, spicier flavor. You can cook them the same ways as carrots.

You can do that as well though parsnips are a little bit softer and coarser than carrots and the spiciness is more pronounced raw vs cooked. Think raw turnip vs cooked turnip.

If you like carrots you'll like parsnips.

Cut them in round slices like carrots amnd fry them in butter. Hard to explain their taste but they are great fried in butter.


The only constant in trapping is change so keep learning.

I put them in my elk stew. They blend in with the potatoes adding a bit of sweetness.

Yep, peal them & fry them brown, just like fried potatoes. Good stuff! I use a little peanut oil with the butter so the butter doesn't burn. Don't forget the salt and pepper.

Parsnips are dug in the spring after being froze in the winter and are real good and sweet. They are sweet and firm, carrots are mushy if they are dug in the spring.

No stew or meat pie is complete without parsnips. As already mentioned, they are best after a frost or mulched and dug during winter. My dad who grew up during the depression took parsnip sandwiched to school. He wasn't so keen on them afterwards.

you should try carrots , potatoes , turnips , and parsnips cut them all about the same size pieces and put them in a big cast iron skillet toss it all with oil salt and pepper roast about 35-40 minutes at 400.

you peel them like a carrot , they are like a sweet spiced carrot sort of


Wild parsnip and cultivated parsnip are basically the same thing , either one will burn you in the 2nd year of growth but only the parts above ground and it is a reaction between the pant juices and the sun. if you dig them in the dark then shower you are not at risk.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.
