Those are some large parsnips you have there.

Why thank you, I grew them myself.  And never actually pulled them out of the ground in the fall, so they've grown incredibly large.

Maybe I've been watching too much "The Following," but at first glance, the small picture on my dash looked like little bloody bodies. Now I can't un-see it.

How did the extra time in the ground and size affect their taste?

YUMMMMMMMM!!! I simply adore parsnips. They are so tasty when roasted. Mix them with carrots and it's TDF!!! Hope they were well enjoyed!

Shawn. Good question. The core gets incredibly large, which means you get a lot of parsnip, but not a lot of edible parsnip. Also, I think they probably sprout more limbs, as mine have.

Sara. If you lived here, you would be getting my harvest. My parsnip quota is about one pound per winter.

Jan. Now I can't un-see it!
