(Pastinaca sativa) Parsnips have an integral place in our winter kitchen: roasted as a side to slow-cooked lentils or risotto, pureed into a creamy nutty soup, even paper-thin atop pizzas. Their warming sweet earthy flavor is the perfect match to the hibernation time of year. Lancer is an excellent variety, selected for shapely long straight roots and canker resistance. The creamy white tapering roots grow to about 12”. Plant in late spring and leave them in the ground through the first couple frosts as, like many fall vegetables, they require a cold period to fully develop their flavor and sweetness.
