I grew parsnips for the first time and I will definitely grow them again next year. They are very easy to grow just make sure you have soil free of rocks because like carrots they will grow really funny if they hit a rock, like a split root or a spiraling root.
And again, I have too many to eat all at once so after doing some research on the Internet I found that they can be frozen.
Blanch them in boiling water for two minutes and then plunge them in an ice bath.
Freeze them individually and then into a zip lock bag.
I kept mine whole because I like to roast whole parsnips and carrots together when I roast a chicken or roast but you can just as easily cut them into bite size pieces.
A real winner!!!
