What In Sam Hill is THIS?




OK, I get it - I'd make a lousy Amish-woman.

What on earth is this?  Is it a turnip?  A parsnip?

I accidentally deleted the email from my CSA farmer telling me what to expect in our veggie bag this week.

If anyone will know, it's Kathy of Moving on to the Past.

Go for it Kathy!

  2. Looks like a parsnip. I did work part time in the produce department of a supermarket while I went to college. Other than that I slept at a Holiday Inn Express. :-P That last one is a joke, a spoof on a commercial if you don't get it. ;)

  3. I think you're right to suggest that it's a parsnip. It looks like a white carrot, so I'm not sure what else it could be.

  4. Looks like a parsnip to me due to the leaves. There are white carrots but the leaves are more fringy. If it is a parsnip you can eat it like a carrot, raw or cooked.

  5. Hmmm.....could be a parsnip but, equally, it could be a daikon (aka Japanese radish).

  6. Hopefully you have more than one!
    Homegrown parsnips are far superior to grocery store ones, which tend to be pithy.
    You can either roast them with other root vegetables or saute them in butter with a little onion.
    I like the "tastespotting.com" website when I'm flummoxed by an ingredient. Just punch in your ingredient and you get a dozen recipes.

  7. Nope, just this one, so I don't think it's a carrot. Carrots come in bunches, even the white ones, I think (?). If someone tries to break in, I can use it as a weapon, it so resembles a club. It will meet some kind of culinary fate this weekend, still not sure what. Thanks, Julie, for the recipe source!

  8. Did you email your CSA to figure out what this is? Curious to see what it turns out to be.

  9. I think Richard is right. That's why there's only one.

  10. when in doubt, boil and eat with salt and butter. that's my rule of thumb.
