The parsnip is a root vegetable closely related to the carrot and parsley. It is a biennial plant usually grown as an annual. Its long, tuberous root has cream-coloured skin and flesh; and left in the ground to mature, it becomes sweeter in flavour after winter frosts.

The parsnip is native to Eurasia. It has been used as a vegetable since antiquity and was cultivated by the Romans. The parsnip is usually cooked, but can also be eaten raw. It is high in vitamins and minerals, especially potassium. It also contains antioxidants and both soluble and insoluble fibre.
