Parsnip Student

Description

STAR BUY.

Student parsnip produces long slender roots with a creamy flesh and smooth skin. It has a small central core and a pleasant mild flavour. This parsnip is one of the first cultivated varieties.
 

Parsnip is a particularly British vegetable because of its winter hardiness. Thankfully it is now reviving as a popular choice thanks to more imaginative uses in cooking. Roast with your Sunday joint or par-boil, roll in flour and Parmesan cheese and roast, delicious!
