Interesting facts

Like carrots, parsnips are native to Eurasia and have been eaten there since ancient times. It is one of the so-called “forgotten” vegetables. Parsnip is less sweet than the common orange carrot; it tastes slightly spicy, a bit like celery root with a touch of anise. Parsnips provide lots of health-benefiting minerals.

Centuries ago, when in Western Europe potatoes were still unknown parsnip played a prominent role in many daily dishes. It originated from the Mediterranean Basin and was a popular vegetable with the ancient Greeks and Romans. Originally, parsnips were the size of orange carrots. They were carried north by the Romans, who found they grew much larger in colder climates.

Over the centuries, in Great Britain and Ireland, the “white carrot” has always remained a popular vegetable. In the United States, immigrants initially also ate parsnip that was introduced to the country by the English. Eventually, as in many other countries parsnip was replaced by the potato. Nowadays North Americans consider parsnip a persistent weed.
