General Parsnip Info

To start with the freshest most flavorful parsnips possible, select ones that are firm, unblemished and less than 8 inches long.

Short Term Parsnip Storage

Before storing remove green tops if still attached, as they will draw nutrients from the parsnip.

Store unwashed parsnips in the crisper section of the refrigerator in a perforated plastic bag; they will be good for 3 to 4 weeks.

Store cut raw parsnips in an airtight container so they do not dry out; cut parsnips have a tendency to turn slightly brown. They will hold their freshness for 4 or 5 days.

After cooking parsnips, they will only last in the refrigerator for a day or two.

Parsnip Long Term Storage

Trim and peel young parsnips and cut into narrow strips. Place in boiling water to blanch for 2 minutes, immediately cool in ice water. Dry and place in airtight plastic containers in the freezer; they will keep for 2 months.

You can freeze cooked parsnip purees.

Parsnip Side Notes

Parsnips look like a cream colored carrot but have a nutty, sweet flavor.
