Parsley Root

This native of Europe, has long scented the cooking of Germany, eastern Europe and the Netherlands. Aromatic and versatile, this old world vegetable has several aliases, such as; petrushka, Hamburg parsley or heimischer. It is the size of a small or medium carrot, never as large as a parsnip, with which is forever being confused because of its color and shape. In fact, the parsley root tastes much different from the parsnip. The parsley root contains strong flavor elements of celeriac, parsley and carrots. Parsley root adds depth and aroma to braises, stews, purees, soups and mashed potatoes. Babé Farms plants parsley root for a year-round harvest, believe it or not it takes six months to grow parsley root! The tops tend to grow faster than the roots, so to aid in the root growth, the tops are trimmed back and then allowed to grow again.
